Turning Climate Knowledge into Climate Action

Change Exhibition at the Two Rivers GalleryCreated in 2008 with a major endowment from the B.C. Ministry of the Environment, PICS is hosted and led by the University of Victoria in collaboration with B.C.'s three other research-intensive universities: Simon Fraser University, the University of British Columbia and the University of Northern British Columbia.

PICS partners with governments, researchers, civil society and the private sector to:

  • Understand the magnitude and patterns of climate change and its impacts;
  • Evaluate the physical, economic and social implications;
  • Assess mitigation and adaptation options and develop policy and business solutions;
  • Evaluate and strengthen educational and capacity-building strategies to address climate change; and
  • Communicate climate change issues to government, industry and the general public.
