Abstract

Degrees of Change explains the implications of a changing climate for Canada and Canadians. It is the second report in the Climate Prosperity series by the National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy (NRTEE) on the economic risks and opportunities to Canada of climate change.
Examining what the impacts of climate change will mean to our environment and what a global low-carbon transition will mean to our economy, Climate Prosperity offers new insights and analysis into shaping Canada’s public policy responses to this most extraordinary challenge.

Abstract

Invasive species pose a serious threat to ecosystems, bearing responsibility for half to two-thirds of species extinctions. Worse yet, this problem is exacerbated by climate change, which facilitates the introduction, establishment, and spread of invasive species. One increasingly popular approach to dealing with this issue is ecosystem-based adaptation, which aims to build the resilience of ecosystems against climate change and, through doing so, reduce the threat of invasive species.

Abstract

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service climate change strategy, titled “Rising to the Urgent Challenge: Strategic Plan for Responding to Accelerating Climate Change,” establishes a basic framework within which the Service will work as part of the larger conservation community to help ensure the sustainability of fish, wildlife, plants and habitats in the face of accelerating climate change.
