Statement: Expert Panel on Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience Results delivers report

by pmnationtalk on June 26, 201820 Views

Following the release of the report Measuring Progress on Adaptation and Climate Resilience: Recommendations to the Government of Canada, Canada’s Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Catherine McKenna, issued the following statement:

“Taking action to help Canadians adapt to climate change is a priority for the Government of Canada. The ability to adapt, prepare, and be resilient in the face of a changing climate helps protect the health, well-being, and prosperity of Canadians.

“Recognizing the importance of measuring progress on how we are adapting to a changing climate, the Government of Canada launched the Expert Panel on Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience Results, in August 2017. The Expert Panel has now concluded its work. Its report Measuring Progress on Adaptation and Climate Resilience: Recommendations to the Government of Canada is available online.

“I sincerely thank the Expert Panel members for their time, energy, and dedication to this work. The information gathered during this process will be invaluable as we move toward a better understanding of how to measure Canada’s progress on adaptation and climate resilience.

“Enhancing our understanding of how best to measure Canada’s progress on climate change adaptation will support the Government’s efforts to help Canadians prepare for the impacts of a changing climate. We are committed to working collaboratively with provincial and territorial governments to identify appropriate ways to measure progress under Canada’s climate plan, including on adaptation and climate resilience.”
