Guidance Document on Good Practices in Climate Change Risk Assessment

ICLEI Canada worked on a project for the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME) to author a guidance document on Good Practices in Climate Change Risk Assessment. Climate change risk assessments can form the basis and inform strategies to build our resilience to climate change, and it is important for all orders of government to better understand how to best conduct these assessments. 

The guidance document was informed through a literature review of climate change risk assessment methodologies used at a variety of scales across Canada and internationally, followed by various expert interviews on how these methodologies were developed and used. As such, the document outlines the guiding principles for climate change risk assessments as well as “good” or recommended practices in conducting these assessments, from start to finish.
