SCAN! made a submission to the Government of Canada on the national adaptation strategy via a public engagement process in the development of the strategy. Adaptation is on the agenda of climate action groups including ours. We wrote that we must be consulted and have much to offer; that the climate crisis must be viewed holistically, ecologically; and that measures taken must be based on caring social justice or they will fail.
We hope that the 10 recommendations made herein will facilitate preparation of an effective, inclusive National Adaptation Strategy.
