The climate is changing. The intensity and frequency of extreme weather has led to concerns about how prepared the public and private sectors are for an event. Hurricanes, floods, droughts, and wildfires are subjecting population centres to more risk. Climate change is already having an impact and is expected to continue into the foreseeable future. Changes in temperature, precipitation and sea level, however, are not uniform — there is great variability in what climate change means depending on location. Determining the regional and local effects of global climate change is critical to assessing vulnerability and risk, which is necessary to create implementable strategies.

Climate change is a long-term challenge with immediate needs; how we define the problem and present the solutions is critical in gaining public and stakeholder buy-in, political support and financing.
