Building a Resilient Canada: The Expert Panel on Disaster Resilience in a Changing Climate

January 2022 – Council of Canadian Academies (CCA)

Current risk management approaches may be insufficient to prepare for future disasters, particularly where hazards overlap. Integrated approaches have the potential to be more impactful, stretching limited resources further. The Building a Resilient Canada report examines current practices and emerging actions to reduce vulnerability and exposure to natural hazards through the integration of climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction (DRR). These actions are diverse but rest on a common foundation of accessible and up-to-date information, sufficient funding and insurance incentives, and coordinated and collaborative governance.
