Making Strides on Community Adaptation in Canada

2016 – ICLEI: Local Governments for Sustainability

The purpose of the Making Strides on Community Adaptation Project was to bridge the gap between planning and implementation by increasing the uptake of existing implementation-related resources such as decision-making tools or geographically specific guidance. This report shares recommendations on how to better leverage implementation, exposes readers to targeted resources and tools that can be used to help support the implementation of adaptation actions, and presents the broad findings from the Project. The report aims to answer the following questions:

  • What is the status of adaptation-related implementation in Canada?
  • What are possible critical success factors for implementing adaptation actions?
  • What are some of the common barriers to implementing adaptation actions?
  • How can practitioners use adaptation resources to better leverage implementation?
