Southwestern New Brunswick
Regional Climate Adaptation Plan:
The Southwestern New Brunswick Regional Climate Adaptation Plan promotes a multi-pronged approach to climate adaptation planning in the region. This regional plan contains vulnerability and risk assessments using the ICLEI Changing Climate, Changing Communities methodology, extensive data related to climate risks and service areas as well as a series of adaptive actions and strategies for southwestern New Brunswick. Adaptive actions are attributed to regional planning, municipal governments and individual community members and homeowners.
Community Vulnerability Assessment of Climate Change and Variability Impacts in Charlotte County:
The Community Vulnerability Assessment, produced in 2014, determined which community elements are most sensitive to environmental and climatic changes and provided a foundation to start to build climate resilience. Identifying community needs and vulnerabilities was the first step in creating a comprehensive climate adaptation plan.
