Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This case study describes planning in 2003 for a new subdivision in Iqaluit, Nunavut. The subdivision was designed with specific targets for environmental sustainability, including consideration of the site's physical conditions and microclimate. Planners collaborated with a local research institute to collect wind data to be used to align buildings for optimal energy-efficiency. Future climate change impacts were considered when deciding best practices for sewer and water lines. City officials look to continue collaborating with the scientific community to assess Iqaluit's adaptive capacity when dealing with climate-related hazards.
