ACT’s Executive Director Deb Harford has been appointed to the federal government’s Expert Panel on Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience Results.

This panel will help to define how to measure progress on federal, provincial, and territorial adaptation efforts in building Canada’s resilience to climate change. The panel will also help communicate to Canadians how the government is preparing for and recovering from the impacts of climate change.

Having a better understanding of this progress will allow for continuous evaluation and improvement of adaptation actions to provide better results for Canadians.

The expert panel will support and complement ongoing work related to the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change.

The expert panel will be chaired by Dr. Blair Feltmate, Head of the Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation, at the University of Waterloo. The panel will include academic, private sector, non-governmental organizations, Indigenous Peoples, and government representatives, and it will engage with provinces and territories in its work.
