ACT is proud to announce the release of its research paper, Climate Change Adaptation: Linkages with Social Policy, produced for the Policy Research Initiative (PRI) of the Government of Canada, and Health Canada.

The paper takes into account the wide-ranging impacts of climate change on Canadians and acknowledges the resulting implications for many areas of social policy.

Offering examples of pro-active (“ex-ante adaptations”) and reactive (“ex-post accommodations”) actions for decision makers to prepare the policy arena for the problems climate change will likely cause, the goal of the paper is to stimulate development of adaptive capacity in communities and governments across Canada.
