Abstract:
Climate change affects all aspects of the Canadian economy and Canadian society as a whole. The Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Program provides funding for research and activities to improve our knowledge of Canada's vulnerability to climate change, to better assess the risks and benefits posed by climate change and to build the foundation upon which appropriate decisions on adaptation can be made.The Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation site provides information on the activities of the Program and links to useful information about climate impacts and adaptation both in Canada and globally. Information about projects funded by the program is accessible through the Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Project Database.
