National fish, wildlife & plants Climate Adaptation Strategy

Friday, March 16, 2012

In response to increasing impacts of climate change and other stressors on America’s natural resources, the United States Congress has called for the development of a national, government-wide strategy to safeguard fish, wildlife, plants, and the natural systems upon which they depend. A draft of that strategy is available here.

Perhaps Canadian officials could build on this strategy for the development of a similar strategy for Canada? A national energy security strategy, integrating GHG mitigation and adaptation goals and objectives, would also be a critical policy step.
