Frameworks and Reports


Frameworks & Reports

A number of BRACE projects developed reports and frameworks to help advance climate change adaptation capacity in Canada. Below you will find a number of frameworks and reports on a variety of topics.


noname_1650916437953Woodlot Owner Survey Report: Climate Change Adaptation Project

Developed by the New Brunswick Federation of Woodlot Owners (NBFWO)

This report summarizes the results of a survey conducted in 2019 to assess the capacity of woodlot owners in New Brunswick to respond to, and manage, their woodlots under a changing climate. The survey was part of a three-year project to increase the capacity of New Brunswick woodlots owners to adapt to climate change, and helped to established a baseline to measure progress against over the project’s three-year time horizon. Survey results will also help to guide the design of workshops, webinars, silviculture tool content, and approaches to updating forest management plans.


noname_1650916530580Adaptation Framework

Developed by Up North on Climate, Laurentian University

This tool is a framework to help First Nation communities or Tribal Councils recognize the impacts of climate change in their communities and initiate climate change adaptation projects. The goal of the Adaptation Framework is to help community climate change specialists move towards successful adaptation for the communities they serve in order to help implement adaptation options that are in line with the community’s needs, meshes with the community’s values and goals, and incorporates Traditional Knowledge as well as science. Steps include learning about climate change impacts and adaptations, gathering knowledge from the community, discussing adaptation options, implementing projects, and evaluating success.

Risk Assessments

noname_1650921615855Risk assessments in Newfoundland and Labrador Resource-based Industries and Municipalities

Developed by CBCL for the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador

This report presents the findings of a cross-cutting risk assessment for the province of Newfoundland, focused on identifying climate change related vulnerabilities, impacts, and potential opportunities to the provinces’ municipalities and natural-resource based industries. The risk assessment process revealed multiple cross- cutting risks that are likely to impact more than one, if not all, of the target sectors.

The industries involved in the study include provincial forestry, fisheries, aquaculture, and agriculture sectors.
