Across Atlantic Canada, coastlines and communities are being adversely affected by climate change, and as temperature, sea level and storm surge increase, adaptation initiatives are being planned and implemented to navigate the impending storm.
Learn about climate, why it’s changing, how it is measured by scientists and understood by local people, and what Atlantic Canada might expect in the coming years.
With more extreme and erratic weather, coastal communities are being adversely affected by climate change. This video explores how Atlantic Canadian communities are on the frontlines of climate change, the human impacts and responses.
Adaptive strategies to climate change are emerging across Atlantic Canada as people recognize a new paradigm must be adopted to survive these shifting conditions and new risks. This video showcases the scientific and practical adaptation options for individuals, communities and government.
