About SFU

ACT (the Adaptation to Climate Change Team) is a policy planning initiative from Simon Fraser University (SFU) designed to develop timely options for sustainable adaptation to climate change impacts.

SFU houses several departments and schools carrying out leading research on climate change and the environment, such as Resource and Environmental Management, Biology, Geography, Earth Sciences, and the Centre for Sustainable Community Development. ACT works with researchers from across the university, tapping into SFU’s expertise on each topic.

SFU has over 25,000 students, 90,000 alumni, and more than 700 faculty. In only 40 years, the original campus has grown into three vibrant campuses in Burnaby, Vancouver and Surrey, and SFU’s reputation has grown into one of innovative teaching, research, and community outreach.
