Change For Climate - How Edmonton will adapt to climate change

Climate change is happening and it is critical that we adapt so that, as a City and as individuals, we can manage the risks of climate and weather related events.

Many Edmontonians associate climate change with longer summers and warmer winters, but it also can bring floods, drought, invasive pests, heat waves, higher food prices and ice storms. By preparing now for climate change, we can be in a better position to weather future climate shocks and stresses.

We're currently working with various stakeholders on a climate change adaptation strategy called Resilient Edmonton. The strategy focuses on key areas such as those mentioned above. Keep watching for updates.
