Impacts & Adaptation Options for Saskatchewan
Adaptation has been defined by the IPCC as...
“Initiatives and measures to reduce the vulnerability of natural and human systems against actual or expected climate change effects. Various types of adaptation exist, e.g. anticipatory and reactive, private and public, and autonomous and planned.”
Adaptation can mean adjustments to practices, processes or structures and it can be in response to current climate variability and extreme events or anticipated climatic change.
More research is required, but we already know a lot about climate change impacts and our adaptation options. Getting engaged with climate change now should help you determine when, where and what you might do to adapt to take advantage of new opportunities or to reduce your risk.
