The City is developing a Climate Resiliency Strategy to assess how Ottawa is vulnerable to climate change and identify strategies to adapt to future conditions and mitigate the greatest climate risks.
Ottawa will become much warmer over the coming decades, with more intense rainfall and more extreme events. This will impact our health and safety, infrastructure, economy and the environment. We need to make sure we are ready to deal with the impacts.
In this first phase of engagement, we’re looking for your input on:
- What climate impacts you are most concerned about
- How climate change is affecting you
- How we can help you prepare for the future
Your input will help us develop a strategy that meets the needs of everyone in Ottawa.
The Climate Resiliency Strategy will go hand in hand with Energy Evolution, the City’s strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
