Ontario’s Climate Adaptation Strategy Assessed

On March 7, 2012 the Environmental Commissioner of Ontario released a review of the 2011 Climate Ready adaptation strategy and planning document. The Commissioner states that the plan “represents a significant contribution towards a growing national and international policy movement”. However, he calls for improvements such as prioritizing the actions that are needed, setting specific targets and timelines, identifying dedicated funding, and outlining the responsibilities of key government ministries. He calls on the province to support local and municipal initiatives such as the Community Adaptation Initiative, whose funding ends in March 2012.
