Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This case study describes the 2004-2005 collaboration between government decision-makers and researchers in defining adaptation strategies to reduce the impacts of climate change on the Sept-Îles, Quebec shoreline, where several community areas are experiencing losses of land of up to 8 m per year. By studying aerial photographs of the last 70 years, researchers concluded that erosion rates are much higher today due to the current climate. Several committees from three study areas in the Gulf were formed to evaluate possible adaptation strategies for the region. Meanwhile, Sept- Îles took action with three main initiatives: informing the public; determining areas at risk and limiting development; establishing a master plan for coastline intervention.
