Core ACT Topics

ACT was founded to study nine core topics that require climate change adaptation planning in Canada. Each topic was assigned a senior policy author and a team of graduate researchers, and featured research into climate change challenges and policy responses as well as workshops and other engagement and outreach. To date, ACT has released reports on five of the core topics - Biodiversity, Extreme Weather, Energy, Water Governance, and Crops & Food Supply. Work is currently underway with a variety of partners on the remaining four topics: Health, Sea Level Rise, Population Displacement and New Technologies.
