This tool is part of an ongoing collaboration between the Scenarios Network for Alaska + Arctic Planning and the Government of the Northwest Territories.
  • NRCan’s Canada in a Changing Climate: Advancing our Knowledge for Action is the national assessment of how and why Canada’s climate is changing; the impacts of these changes on our communities, environment and economy; and how we’re adapting across the country. Led by Natural Resources Canada, these user-friendly, online reports enable Canadians to learn about the climate change impacts they’re facing, make sound decisions and take action to adapt.
  • The Public Infrastructure Engineering Vulnerability Committee (PIEVC) protocol was developed to conduct engineering assessments of the vulnerability of Canada’s public infrastructure to the impacts of climate change.
