Canada in a Changing Climate: Advancing our Knowledge for Action


The Atlantic Chapter of the national assessment of how Canada’s climate is changing, the impacts of these changes and how we are adapting to reduce risk.

This regional report will examine the impacts on our society, natural environment and economy, as well as the actions being taken to adapt to these impacts. You can expect to read about vulnerable resource sectors and infrastructure, challenges in capacity building as well as innovative and sustainable adaptation practices. 

The process to develop this chapter is an ongoing collaboration between the leading co-author Sabine Dietz and subject-matter experts from a range of backgrounds. Together, they will assess scientific and technical literature, Indigenous knowledge and practitioner experiences to build our understanding of the impacts of climate change and the ways we can adapt.
