Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This case study examines the physical and economic hazards facing the Chatham-Kent region due to climate change. The case study includes the benefits of community-led and long-term adaptation planning for coastal communities to increase resilience. The study demonstrates the financial and environmental benefits of incorporating nature-based adaptation approaches. Due to the impacts of climate change, some locations in the region may require larger-scale transformative adaptation concepts that realign coastal land uses and create ecosystem benefits with habitat restoration.
