Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This report is an update and expansion of the document published in 2006 by the Canadian Climate Impacts and Adaptation Research Network (Mehdi, 2006) under the same title. It provides municipal decision-makers and staff with information to help them understand the need for climate change adaptation and how to put adaptation measures in place. The book also refers to other guides that can help municipalities identify and address risks and opportunities, and to case studies that illustrate how municipalities of varying sizes from across the country are taking action now. Each case study outlines the impact of changing climate on the community, the catalyst for developing a plan, the planmaking process, measures adopted, next steps and lessons learned. The case studies illustrate the value in collaborating with non-traditional partners and demonstrate practical measures that other municipalities facing similar issues might take to enhance community resilience in the face of a changing climate.
