The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is engaged in both climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts. The ClimAID project assessed both climate change impacts and adaptation options for the state.
Climate change is expected to negatively impact the parks and protected lands in Ontario. To better prepare for these adverse impacts, 45 experts were convened and surveyed in order to identify the most feasible and desirable adaptation recommendations in a systematic fashion. In sum, over 1,000 recommendations were generated and later condensed down to nearly 160. Fifty-six of these recommendations were deemed “desirable” or “highly desirable” by panel experts but only two were considered to be highly feasible.
