Special Projects

In addition to our research and publications, ACT has been a key partner on two unique, long-term special projects:

Columbia River Treaty

The Columbia River Treaty, an agreement between Canada and the United States governing the Columbia River Basin, is up for renegotiation in the near future. Climate change will impact the basin itself, as well as its water levels and the availability of resources coming from it, in the future. ACT has participated in multiple publications and projects related to the future of the Columbia River Treaty.

Coastal Cities at Risk (CCaR)

The Coastal Cities at Risk (CCaR) project was a five-year, international research project exploring the impacts of climate change on the coastal megacities of Vancouver, Laos, Manila, and Bangkok. ACT was a partner in the Vancouver research team and made important contributions to publications, conferences, and other outcomes of this project.
