The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM), the University of British Columbia, and the University of Waterloo have jointly launched a survey to learn more about adaptation planning in communities across Canada. This survey is intended to improve understanding of climate adaptation planning by Canadian municipal governments, generate applied knowledge that can help local governments with their adaptation efforts, support policy development, and continue to develop and share best practices.
The results will help the FCM in its climate-related work, as well as inform the development of federal and provincial policies and programs.
The online Local Adaptation in Canada Survey
is open until March 22, 2018
and will take approximately 10-25 minutes complete. Whether your municipality is just starting to think about climate change adaptation or is well on its way in implementing adaptation plans, projects or solutions, your input is valued. All responses are confidential and the data will be aggregated, so nothing you report will be directly attributable to your municipality.
The survey results will be used to create resources and training materials that you can use to help your community adapt to climate impacts, such as flooding or extreme weather. Your feedback will also help to inform the design and delivery of local climate adaptation funding and programming in Canada, which could benefit your municipality in the future.
For questions about the survey or more information about how results will be used, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
