Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This case study describes the process to develop a comprehensive local plan to adapt to the impacts of climate change and rising sea level in Le Goulet, New Brunswick. Community leaders sought engineers and researchers to assist in producing a comprehensive local plan to adapt to potential impacts. Adaptation options included relocating homes most at risk and constructing a 3.8 km sea wall, which were discussed in resident focus groups. Collaboration efforts successfully initiated important debates about the future of the community, demonstrating the importance of cooperation between local residents and climate change specialists when producing a climate change adaptation plan for a small community.
