The mandate of the Ontario Centre for Climate Impacts and Adaptation Resources (OCCIAR) is to:
- effectively communicate the science of climate change including its current and future impacts;
- encourage the development and implementation of adaptation strategies in order to reduce climate vulnerability and increase resiliency;
- to create and foster partnerships with stakeholder groups;
- and support the work of Ontario’s Expert Panel on Climate Change Adaptation within the Province of Ontario and beyond.
The Centre will also be a hub for climate change impacts and adaptation activities, events and resources.
