Community Climate Adaptation Plan (CCA Plan)

Extreme weather events can significantly impact local health and safety; property; infrastructure; water quality; and the natural environment. Local research shows we can expect more: extreme heat; intense rainfall; freezing rain events; storms and strong winds due to climate change.

The Community Climate Adaptation (CCA) Plan will help us understand the impacts, and how they may affect our community. It will also encourage Waterloo Region citizens to work together and become more resilient to changing climate conditions and extreme weather.

By developing the CCA Plan, we're joining communities throughout Canada and around the world who are working to reduce the local impacts of climate change.


Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Action Ideas tool between November 27 and December 21, 2018. These ideas will help us identify actions that our community can take to become more resilient to extreme weather and changing climate conditions. While the Ideas can still be viewed, the tool will not accept new submissions. Stay tuned for an update in the new year, when we will identify adaptation actions that may be included in the final CCA Plan.
