CLIMAtlantic facilitates access to data and information that supports adaptation to climate change in Atlantic Canada through collaboration, networking, and partnerships.

Why does adaptation matter?

Due to the greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere over many years, simply reducing emissions is no longer enough to prevent the worst effects of climate change.

As a result, adaptation is required and is key to managing the risks and worst-case scenarios from climate change.

What are the impacts of climate change?

The impacts of a warming planet are sea-level rise, inland flooding, storm surges, saltwater intrusion, biodiversity loss, increased extreme heat, drought, and erosion. The level of damage caused by these impacts can be reduced and sometimes prevented. The cost of prevention is far less than reactive measures after impacts.

How CLIMAtlantic can help

As awareness of climate change grows, so does the demand for climate services. Accurate data supports decisions to reduce the impacts of climate change.

Our focus is on creating a strong network, generating a wealth of information sharing amongst colleagues, in addition to supporting specific place-based work.
