Brevifolia Consulting works with First Nations, communities and governmental institutions to support/manage initiatives and projects related to climate change mitigation & adaptation.
Mitigation means decreasing GHG emissions (and pollution in general) so that the climate can stabilize and endangered ecosystems can heal. Climate change mitigation projects typically involve fossil fuel (diesel/propane) displacement through renewable energy or energy efficiency, and carbon capture through ecosystem remediation (e.g. planting trees, restoring grasslands and wetlands).
Climate (and local weather) is changing already. Because of climate systems inertia, about 2C of average warming are already “baked in” between now and ~2050. This warming will likely cause serious local impacts: to infrastructure, to our ways of life, possibly to our food supply. Climate change adaptation involves planning and preparing for these impacts.
