Across Canada, local governments are implementing innovative adaptation measures to help combat some of the unavoidable impacts of climate change. In an effort to recognize these actions, ICLEI Canada has established an ongoing collection process to capture many of the measures that have been implemented in Canadian communities.
Although climate change adaptation is a complex process, ICLEI’s methodology provides a straightforward approach to adaptation planning using a five-milestone framework. Each milestone represents a fundamental step in the adaptation planning process.
ICLEI Canada has developed a Members Case Study Series which profiles the work of municipalities across Canada. The series covers topics ranging from land use management to urban governance and provides an overview of best practices and lessons learned from those initiatives being implemented across the country.
ICLEI Canada often hosts and participates in webinars on various climate change and sustainability issues at the local level. Recordings of past webinars can be found here, when available.
Climate scientists at Wilfred Laurier University in Waterloo, ON have created an online database to record the conditions of outdoor skating rinks that relies on submissions from communities across the country.
