The impacts of climate change are seen across the globe and are increasingly affecting our economies and societies. Adaptation to climate change is and will continue to be one of the greatest policy challenges facing the Canadian government. Despite existing knowledge on climate change impacts and adaptation, understanding the future of climate change is a complex and on-going process with many gaps existing in the body of academic, government, and other policy-relevant publications.
The report, Climate in a Disrupted World, led by researchers at Wilfrid Laurier University and the Balsillie School of International Affairs, explores the indirect impacts of climate change on Canada, an area of research that is largely unexplored. The report takes a closer look at these external impacts outside of Canada's borders and their effects and implications on the country. Overall, the research highlights the need for a better understanding of the interactions between various climate change impacts and of all the risks and uncertainties of climate change on Canada. From these understandings policymakers across Canada can work towards meeting the challenge of future climate change.
