Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This case study describes London, Ontario's Climate Change Adaptation Strategy and the importance of collaborative partnerships between climate change specialists and municipal staff. Rainfall projections done by University of Western Ontario will form the basis for revised engineering standards for the City's stormwater management system. These changes will allow the City to make proactive incremental changes to its flood management program that should help avoid costly, disruptive and dangerous flooding in the future.
