Canada’s Map of Adaptation Action

Decision makers and adaptation practitioners across Canada have identified the need for accessible examples of climate change adaptation actions, from others that have faced similar issues, as a key tool when incorporating climate change considerations into their work.

The Map of Adaptation Actions was launched in June 2021 to address this need by providing decision-makers and adaptation practitioners with a collection of climate change adaptation actions from across Canada. This tool includes examples from the national assessment process, Canada in a Changing Climate: Advancing our Knowledge for Action and from various other sources in Canada, including all levels of government, Indigenous communities and organizations, non-governmental organizations, and more.

New adaptation examples are added to Canada’s Map of Adaptation Actions on an ongoing basis. The map also features a filter display, the ability to share specific search results, access to FAQs, and links to other resources.

The Map of Adaptation Actions is the product of a Government of Canada-led initiative in collaboration with many partners. Map development was co-led by the Canadian Center for Climate Services (Environment and Climate Change Canada) and the Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Division (Natural Resources Canada).  Together with the Climate Risk Institute and the Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction, ICLEI Canada gathered and summarized the initial list of case studies that were included on the Map when it was launched in June 2021 and continued to add new adaptation examples to the map throughout 2022 and 2023.
