Canada's national adaptation strategy : building resilient communities and a strong economy.: En4-544/2023E-PDF

"As a whole-of-society blueprint, the National Adaptation Strategy is intended to guide action in Canada to better adapt to and prepare for the impacts of climate change. Climate change impacts affect all aspects of society and collective action is urgently needed. This Strategy uses "we" and "our" to represent individuals, governments and other institutions, academia and the private sector. The Strategy addresses the key climate change risks in Canada, including those identified by the Canadian Council of Academies, and the recent Canada in a Changing Climate reports … The Strategy complements other national and Pan-Canadian strategies that are building resilience and reducing greenhouse gas emissions in Canada, including Canada's 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan, National Housing Strategy, Poverty Reduction Strategy, Canadian Wildland Fire Strategy, the Emergency Management Strategy for Canada, and others. The Strategy recognizes that adaptation is a global challenge that requires action from all countries, and it will support Canada's contribution towards meeting the global goal on adaptation under the Paris Agreement"--Introduction, pages 4, 5.
