Implementation framework for climate change adaptation planning at a watershed scale .  : En108-4/39-2015E-PDF

This Implementation Framework for Climate Change Adaptation Planning at a Watershed Scale (Framework) was developed by the Water Monitoring and Climate Change Project Team of the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME) Water Management Committee (WMC). The Framework provides watershed managers with a structured process to identify and reduce climate vulnerability and risk, and build resiliency within the watershed. The Framework presents a methodology through which a group of individuals can come together to assess and manage vulnerabilities and risks stemming from climate change at a watershed level. It is informed by existing international and domestic climate change adaptation frameworks that appear in published literature and a jurisdictional survey of climate change adaptation practitioners from across Canada. The Framework lists seven key steps, each with a series of tasks and outcomes. Inherent to the process is the intention of adaptive management. The method of managing adaptively is appropriate for this context in dealing with uncertainty in climate change as well as the importance of tracking, monitoring and evaluating adaptive measures designed to reduce climate risk
