AbstractSix case studies identified factors that motivate jurisdictions to develop specific policy instruments and others that facilitate their implementation and promote their positive outcomes. Three studies examined the mechanisms used by provinces or states to support municipalities in their climate change adaptation planning. They looked at the instruments used in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Massachusetts. Another study examined the environmental assessment of bank stabilization projects in the North Shore region of Québec. A fifth study examined the consideration of climate change adaptation in the Regional Land Use and Development Plan of the Montreal agglomeration. A sixth study looked at the Climate Ready Boston planning process.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This report summarizes six case studies to examine the factors that motivate jurisdictions to develop specific climate change adaptation policy instruments and identifies factors that lead to the success or failure of such policies. Case studies in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, and Massachusetts examine the mechanisms used by provinces or states to support municipalities in their adaptation planning. The report concludes by providing the most relevant indicators for policymakers to consider when assessing progress in their adaptation strategies.
