Environment Science

A changing climate has the potential to affect northern terrain and coastline stability, thus affecting critical infrastructure and communities. The Climate Change Geoscience Program generates sound geoscience information to help reduce the uncertainties associated with development of critical infrastructure for resource industries operating in the north.

The national and sectoral science assessments of climate change impacts and adaptation present the latest body of knowledge for Canadians, and help inform the planning of programs, policies and actions. The Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Program supports the development of such knowledge.
