Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This report presents the current state of knowledge about climate risks to the Canadian transportation sector, and identifies existing or potential adaptation practices. The report includes six regional chapters and one urban chapter which reflect the different climate change impacts, vulnerabilities and opportunities across Canada. Adaptation approaches are discussed and case studies highlight adaptation actions and practices. A synthesis chapter brings together the report's key findings. Co-led by Transport Canada and Natural Resources Canada, the development of this report synthesized over 700 publications and involved 42 lead and contributing authors, and over 228 expert reviewers.
