The Indigenous Climate Health Action Program (ICHAP) funds community-driven initiatives to address climate impacts on health and wellbeing for First Nations across BC. Projects can focus on climate health in general or on developing a strategy or action plan to reduce climate change impacts on community health.
The aim of the program is to strengthen community resilience in the face of a changing climate. By applying a flexible, community-centered approach and wholistic view of health and wellness, the program has been able to support a wide range of initiatives that address diverse climate health priorities across different communities.
This year's program runs from April 2021 to March 2022 and supports around 30 projects across the five BC health regions.
