Climate Change Adaptation

Overview

Since 2014, ECW has worked with southwestern New Brunswick communities to increase the region's resilience to climate change. Community working groups and technical committees have been established to identify vulnerabilities, assess risks, and identify adaptive actions. The results of these projects inform adaptation planning that informs planning work at the regional service commission and in the region's municipalities. ECW has developed methods for displaying data and engaging the public, working to increase local knowledge of the anticipated impacts with hope that adaptive actions are strengthened and as a result, resilience is increased.

Funders

The climate change adaptation program has received support from Environment and Climate Change Canada, New Brunswick Environment and Local Government, and the Intact Foundation.
