Advancing Adaptation Resources
The Advancing Adaptation project helped increase climate change resilience in communities in the Great Lakes watershed, regardless of their stage in the adaptation process. Explore the resources that were created as part of the project, and use them to advance adaptation in your community.
Cost of Doing Nothing:
A Toolbox for Building a Local Business Case for Adaptation
The Cost of Doing Nothing (CODN) toolbox provides guidance on collecting locally-relevant data to weigh the costs inaction within a local context when investing in climate action.
Equitable Climate Adaptation: Considerations for Local Governments
This resource is intended to address the barriers preventing local governments from taking action to support climate change adaptation in a way that centres equity and community engagement. It creates both a case for this approach as well as offer tangible, actionable ideas and tools for partners in local government.
Engaging Meaningfully: Leveraging Community Engagement to Advance Implementation
This resource was created to help municipalities engage with multiple institutions and stakeholders to make the most of external resources available for implementation.
Introducing Indicators: A First Look at Using Indicators to Measure Progress on Adaptation
This resource provides a starting point for municipalities that are developing or updating climate adaptation plans and need to identify relevant, measurable indicators.
Adaptation Implementation Case Studies
These case studies showcase the approaches used by 11 Canadian municipalities to plan and implement a range of adaptation actions (which involved considerable community engagement) in their communities.
ICLEI Canada gratefully acknowledges that the Advancing Adaptation project was made possible with funding from the Ontario Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP) alongside financial support from the Government of Canada through the federal Department of Environment and Climate Change Canada.
