Ontario Regional Adaptation Collaborative (2017-2018)

Since its launch in 2012, the Adaptation Platform has brought together key groups from government, industry and professional organizations, to collaborate on adaptation priorities. This collaboration has yielded a wealth of initiatives, projects and products aimed at advancing adaptation in Ontario, and across the country.

The 2017-2018 Ontario Regional Adaptation Collaborative will serve to further assess climate risks in Ontario and build capacity for Ontarians to adapt to climate change. The program will focus on building regional partnerships to assess and manage climate risks; and continue to expand the reach of the Adaptation Platform’s outcomes through activities focused on engagement, dissemination, and the use and uptake of Adaptation Platform products/results within the province of Ontario.
