The state of local adaptation planning in the face of climate change

Communities across Canada are dealing with increased droughts, floods and wildfires. Over the past year, researchers from the University of British Columbia and the University of Waterloo worked with the Federation of Canadian Municipalities to conduct a survey studying municipal adaptation planning across Canada. Building on results from a similar survey in 2012, it was found that over the past 10 years, above-average rain and snowfall, and more severe storms are the most frequent weather events reported by local governments, and that responding to these effects of climate change requires involvement from all levels of government, industry and the public.
