Low carbon resilience: best practices for professionals
An integrated approach is needed for emissions reduction and adaptation to climate change practices, according to a Simon Fraser University (SFU) report. The report, Low Carbon Resilience: Best Practices for Professionals, detailing best practices for the integration of climate mitigation and adaptation has been endorsed by leading Canadian national professional associations. The SFU report calls for governments to combine emission reduction and climate adaptation strategies and outlines practices that can help reduce extreme climate impacts. The report authored by SFU’s ACT (Adaptation to Climate Change Team), is the first to propose integration of climate mitigation (the reduction of carbon emissions, and climate adaptation, addressing ongoing climate changes) in Canadian professional practices.
