Measuring Progress on Adaptation and Climate Resilience: Recommendations to the Government of Canada

2018 – Environment and Climate Change Canada

Strengthening adaptation and resilience in Canadian communities depends upon a common understanding of how to monitor and measure the progress of adaptation. Meaningful and thoughtful indicators can help us set realistic goals, measure our progress and adapt our implementation plans according to evolving circumstances. In August 2017, the Government of Canada launched the Expert Panel on Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience Results (EPCARR) to provide advice to the federal government on measuring progress on adaptation and climate resilience. The EPCARR released its report of recommendations, proposing 54 indicators across five chapters that are aligned with the adaptation and climate resilience pillar of the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change. The recommendations are intended to be of interest to public and private sectors, indigenous communities and non-profit organizations.
