Building Regional Adaptation Capacity and Expertise (BRACE) Program

BRACE addresses a critical barrier to climate change adaptation action in Canada: knowledge and tools exist but the capacity to use them is limited.

The Building Regional Adaptation Capacity and Expertise (BRACE) Program is working in direct partnership with provinces to build the capacity of organizations, professionals, communities, and small and medium-sized enterprises to apply climate change considerations in decision-making and to implement adaptation actions.

The BRACE Program takes a customized regional approach to address the unique needs of each province, encouraging thematic and regional collaboration on adaptation in areas like natural infrastructure, professional training and natural resource sectors.

Projects are using a wide range of approaches for building adaptation capacity, such as delivering focused training, preparing locally relevant tools, encouraging regional collaboration, and facilitating communities of practice.
