Assessment Advisory Committee
The Advisory Committee is made up of about 20 members who are assessment users and subject-matter experts from governments, academic institutions, Indigenous organizations, non-governmental organizations and industry from all regions of Canada. All members are knowledgeable on climate change impacts and adaptation issues and bring a wide range of expertise to the table. Members participate in their personal capacity as experts in the fields of impacts and adaptation, policy, communications, etc. and not as representatives of their host organization. In addition to helping promote the assessment throughout the process, they provide advice and input on issues such as:
- assessment approach and goals;
- report organization;
- supporting products;
- who else to involve; and
- communicating the process and results.
