Compilations of Climate Change Information

These compendiums introduce a wide range of climate change tools and resources that are beyond the scope of this Climate Change Information Portal that are relevant to professionals working within and outside of BC.

Organization Resource
Environment and Climate Change Canada Environment and Climate Change Canada’s Strategic Assessment of Climate Change (SACC)
The SACC describes the greenhouse gas (GHG) and climate change information that project proponents need to submit at each phase of a federal impact assessment and clarifies how this information will be reviewed. It will enable consistent, predictable, efficient, and transparent consideration of climate change throughout the impact assessment process.
ESSA Technologies for Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment Tools for Climate Change Vulnerability Assessments for Watersheds
This compendium of tools is aimed at technical experts, adaptation planners, and resource managers to develop climate change vulnerability assessments of water quantity and water quality at a watershed scale.
Local Governments for Sustainability Canada (ICLEI Canada) Adaptation Library: Community Resources for Climate Adaptation
The library produces filtered, community-related adaptation tools and resources, and guides the user on how these tools and resources can support their climate change adaptation efforts.
Natural Resources Canada Canada's Changing Climate Report
This report is about how and why Canada’s climate has changed and what changes are projected for the future. Led by Environment and Climate Change Canada, this document is the first of a series to be released as part of Canada in a Changing Climate: Advancing our Knowledge for Action.
