Metro Vancouver’s latest edition of Caring for the Air showcases innovative solutions to the region’s air quality and climate challenges.
Caring for the Air is published annually, and previous editions have focused on the development of climate and air quality plans such as the Climate 2050 Roadmaps and Clean Air Plan. The 2022 edition looks at how Metro Vancouver will implement actions outlined in those plans and covers topics that include:
- How climate change can influence extreme weather events that can lead to degraded air quality, such as the heat dome in 2021
- Guidance on how to follow residential indoor wood burning requirements in Metro Vancouver
- Results from Metro Vancouver’s first consumption-based emissions inventory, which includes “embodied” emissions that occur outside of the region but are associated with goods and services used in the region
- A summary of air quality data for 2021 and trends in key air contaminant levels since 2010
