Abstract: 

The Adaptation to Climate Change Team (ACT) reviewed Canada’s and other countries’ leading climate change adaptation and extreme weather risk reduction practices and proposes a transformative, nested set of strategies, action plans and implementation programs, and practices that employ these types of principles. ACT also looked for barriers that require attention, and pitfalls to be avoided, in particular with respect to overland flooding, and proposes an agenda for giving focused attention to the roles of government, the private insurance industry and stakeholders to achieve effective and affordable overland flooding risk reduction, relief and recovery.
