Rising Seas and Shifting Sands: Combining Natural and Grey Infrastructure to Protect Canada’s Eastern and Western Coastal Communities

December 2021 – Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation, University of Waterloo

This report describes how Canada can scale-up the use of nature-based solutions, in tandem with grey infrastructure, to protect communities along the East and West coastlines.

Importantly, action must consider natural processes along the coast to a greater extent than has occurred to date. Reduction of flooding and erosion at one site, if not carefully designed, can cause instability further along the coast and degradation of coastal ecosystems on which communities depend.
