Adapting to Climate Change: An Introduction for Canadian Municipalities
Posted byKirsten Feifel
This report is intended for elected municipal officials and senior staff. It outlines decision-making processes to adapt to climate change and showcases municipal adaptation measures implemented across the country. The goal is to help municipal governments make informed decisions and take appropriate action. For those municipalities that are already developing adaptation measures, this document can help enhance an understanding of climate change adaptation among elected officials, staff and the broader community.
Case studies are included in the report from different communities around the country, including Clyde River, City of Kamloops, Vancouver, Edmonton, Regina, London (Ontario), Toronto, Quebec City, Le Goulet, Halifax, and Annapolis Royal.
