Innovation in Action!
2011 - E. Pond et al., UBC - Collaborative for Advanced Landscape Planning
This Guidance Manual describes how climate change visioning approaches can be applied by municipalities, consultants and community groups to support adaptation and mitigation in BC communities. The Manual includes local case studies, visual examples and validation research.
Resources highlighted here relate to the economic impacts of climate change, as well as financing adaptation efforts.
2006 – Government of the United Kingdom
This well-known, detailed report attempts to outline and quantify the economic impacts of climate change, the economics of stabilizing greenhouse gas emissions and the costs associated with not acting on climate change. Adaptation is a key component of the report, as societies must balance how much they are willing and able to adapt to climate change, and how aggressively they can mitigate emissions and curb further climate change. The review takes a global perspective and concludes that the benefits of strong early actions outweigh the costs. Issues associated with not acting are outlined, and the challenges of poor and rich nations adapting are discussed.
2011 - National Round Table on the Environment and Economy
This report, published by the National Round Table on the Environment and Economy (NRTEE), is the fourth in their climate prosperity series. Using four separate scenarios, this is the first national study to illustrate potential economic consequences to Canada resulting from climate change. Global greenhouse gas emissions will have economic and other implications for Canada. The ability to adapt is a cost-effective way to address and alleviate the impacts of climate change.
