From Impacts to Adaptation: Canada in a Changing Climate 2007

This assessment discusses current and future risks and opportunities that climate change presents to Canada, with a focus on human and managed systems. It is based on a critical analysis of existing knowledge, including both published scientific and technical literature and expert knowledge. The current state of understanding is presented, and key knowledge gaps are identified. Many of the chapters address issues specific to a particular region. However there are also chapters that address Canada in the international context, and moving forward on adaptation. Advances in understanding adaptation, as well as examples of recent and ongoing adaptation initiatives, are highlighted throughout the report.
