Climate risks and adaptation practices for the Canadian transportation sector 2016: T42-12/2017E-PDF

“This report is a snap-shot in time, presenting the state of knowledge about climate risks to the Canadian transportation sector, and identifying existing or potential adaptation practices that may be applied to reduce them. It is intended to serve as an accessible source of information that can inform decision-making and policy development, without making recommendations or prescribing specific actions which can vary based on different situations. This report provides transportation decision-makers and practitioners with information intended to support enhanced resilience to climate risks, while also serving as a knowledge foundation for future research. The report is organized into six regional and one urban chapter to reflect the different climate vulnerabilities, priorities, practices and opportunities across Canada’s national transportation system. Each chapter includes a profile of the region’s population, economy, climate and transportation networks, in addition to examining observed climate impacts, future risks, opportunities, and adaptation approaches for road, rail, air, and marine transportation"--Introd., p. 3.
