Cities Adapt to Extreme Weather: Celebrating Local Leadership

This report celebrates communities across Canada that are adapting to reduce the risk of loss and damage from extreme weather. This includes reducing the risk of damage from flood, wildfire, severe wind, and other hazards. This report recognizes the leadership evident in communities across the country, but it is also a call for a significant increase in disaster risk reduction efforts. More action is needed by private industry, the federal government, and provincial governments. The case studies and the lessons learned that are presented in this report demonstrate action underway in Canada to implement each of the four priorities for action set out in the Sendai Framework: Build back better in recovery Better understand disaster risk Strengthen disaster risk governance Invest in disaster risk reduction
