The Expert Panel on Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience Results was launched by the federal government in August 2017 to advise the Government of Canada on measuring overall progress on adaptation and climate resilience.
The Expert Panel was asked to recommend a suite of indicators to measure progress on adaptation and climate resilience in Canada. The recommended indicators were to align with the five key areas of action identified under the adaptation and climate resilience pillar of the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change, Canada’s national plan to address climate change, build resilience, and grow the economy. It is under this framework that the Expert Panel proposes a suite of 54 indicators across the following five chapters:
- Protecting and Improving Human Health and Well-Being
- Supporting Particularly Vulnerable Regions
- Reducing Climate-Related Hazards and Disaster Risks
- Building Climate Resilience through Infrastructure
- Translating Scientific Information and Indigenous Knowledge into Action
