Working with governments and non-governmental organizations to adjust to the observed and anticipated impacts of climate change.

Achieving sustainable development requires focusing on the underlying economic, demographic, political and environmental factors that currently limit adaptive capacity and increase vulnerability to climate change. Our experts develop the strategies, tools and policy advice needed to respond effectively to the impacts of climate change on people, societies, economies and the environment. Our work in developing countries and Canada aims to:

  • Increase understanding of effective responses to the complex socioeconomic and environmental impacts of climate change
  • Develop tools and processes to facilitate these responses
  • Encourage integration of adaptation considerations into routine decision making
  • Understand the role that adaptation actions may play in either promoting or undermining peacebuilding efforts
