This project explores the impact of current land use policy and regulations on the potential for improving the affordability, and increasing the stock of energy-efficient, low-carbon and resilient housing in British Columbia. It focuses on identifying the barriers to resilient multi-family housing, defined here as housing that is designed and managed to decrease vulnerability to climate-related risks such as increased heat, air quality events due to wildfires, and flooding.
