Canada to develop first climate adaptation plan

Ottawa, May 17 (TIWN) Canadian Environment and Climate Change Minister, Steven Guilbeault has launched a public consultation to develop the country's first National Adaptation Strategy.

Guilbeault on Monday said the climate adaptation is a subject that is preoccupying every level of government and every community in Canada, kicking off a virtual adaptation conference attended by more than a thousand participants, including provinces, territories, leaders of National Indigenous Organisations, as well as climate adaptation experts, industry representatives, and public members.

“We have to look at climate action in this 21st century as a matter of both offence and defence,” the Minister added.

“As we increase our preparations for the many impacts of our changing climate, it feels like fighting a war on two fronts.”

“We must reduce carbon pollution and we must prepare for the impacts of climate change,” he said.
