Project Summary/Overview

This integrated research project, which ran from 2007-2008, was initiated to better understand the implications of projected climate change impacts and adaptation responses on southern Ontario’s fish, fisheries, and water resources. Climate change will have predominantly negative effects on species and habitats, and resulting economic effects are expected to be devastating to the region. In addition, changes in temperature and precipitation patterns will require alterations to water resources planning and management. This project included a cost-benefit analysis of how and when climate change adaptation measures might be applicable to protect the region’s fish, fisheries industry, and water resources.

Project Summary/Overview

The Regional Adaptation Collaboratives (RAC) Climate Change Program was designed to help Canadian communities prepare for and adapt to the regional impacts of climate change. The six RACs work with federal, provincial, local, and community partners to identify climate-related issues and develop place-specific solutions to mitigate adverse impacts in the future. The RAC Program and associated projects are scheduled to conclude in December 2012.

Abstract

This executive summary developed by the Pacific Islands Regional Climate Assessment (PIRCA) is aimed at assessing the state of knowledge about climate change indicators, impacts, and adaptive capacity of the Hawaiian archipelago and the US-Affiliated Pacific Islands (USAPI). The PIRCA is a collaborative effort engaging federal, state, and local government agencies, non-government organizations, academia, businesses, and community groups to inform and prioritize their activities in the face of a changing climate.

Abstract

This collection of case studies was developed by the Pacific Islands Regional Climate Assessment (PIRCA), and is part of Climate Change and Pacific Islands: Indicators and Impacts, which is being published as one of a series of technical inputs to the National Climate Assessment (NCA) 2013 report. These case studies illustrate current climate impacts and adaptations across the Pacific Islands region.
