The overarching goal of the Government of Canada's Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Program is to reduce Canada's vulnerability to climate change. The research program supports cost shared research to address gaps in our knowledge of Canada's vulnerability to climate change and to provide information for adaptation decision-making.
The program also supports the Canadian Climate Impacts and Adaptation Research Network (C-CIARN). This network facilitates linkages between stakeholders and researchers, promotes new research techniques and methodologies, disseminates information, and provides a voice for an emerging impacts and adaptation research community.
