Canadian Communities' Guidebook for Adaptation to Climate Change

This Guidebook provides a process to help decision makers incorporate climate change science, impacts, and adaptation and mitigation solutions into their sustainable development initiatives. The report is intended to aid in the interpretation of the potential consequences of climate change impacts in a local context, and demonstrate how to develop adaptation actions and responses to address these anticipated consequences.

Written for planners, decision-makers, local practitioners and investors, this resource offers step-by-step guidelines that are designed to help assess impending impacts from a changing climate, develop adaptation strategies that are coupled with mitigation co-benefits, and foster actions that will support sustainable decisions and resiliency for prepared communities.
