Canada in a changing climate: sector perspectives on impacts and adaptation

Source(s):  Government of Canada

This report focuses on new information and knowledge, assessing advances made in understanding climate change impacts and adaptation from a sectoral perspective, based primarily on literature published up to the end of 2012. It draws from the individual chapters of Canada's national-scale science assessment of climate change impacts and adaptation, which include an overview of Canada’s changing climate (Ch. 2), thematic chapters focused on sectors (Ch. 3 to 8) and the concluding chapter on adaptation research and practice (Ch. 9). The rest of the synthesis is structured around high-level conclusions, supported by examples and insights from an integrative analysis across the report themes1. Key findings include the following areas: natural resources, food production, industry, biodiversity and protected areas, human health, water and transpiration infrastructure.
