Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
Since 2006, Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and the Clean Air Partnership (CAP) have been engaged in a capacity building collaboration focused on adapting to extreme heat in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Initial discussions focused on facilitating scientific data collection to identify and characterize urban heat vulnerabilities in the GTA, but evolved considerably in scope and breadth of focus over a five year period. The collaborative process led to the development of new climate change adaptation planning tools, facilitated the engagement of GTA municipalities in the use of geomatic information in planning to reduce the impacts of urban heat and motivated GTA municipalities to develop projects and programs to protect their communities from urban heat island effects and the expected impacts of climate change.
The development of a strategic advisory group was critical in fostering the collaborative process and encouraged the creation of lasting partnerships and capacity building in the region. The group helped establish project goals and objectives, and provided a communications hub that spurred constructive dialogue, encouraging the creation of a range of new ideas and resultant projects. The advisory group demonstrated elasticity, a willingness to work together, an ability to reach agreement and to communicate effectively; essential traits in successful collaborations.
