Canadian Communities’ Guidebook for Adaptation to Climate Change

This Guidebook is intended to help those who are looking for ways to reduce the impacts of climate change (increasing heat waves, water shortages, intense storms and sea-level rise) while decreasing GHG emissions and ensuring sustainable development for their communities. Recognition of the need to integrate climate risks into development priorities and decision making has driven the integration of adaptation and mitigation in the context of sustainable development. This Guidebook provides one method to achieve such integration.
