Plans to Boost Environment, Ignore Kyoto
The Canadian government, under fire for dismissing
the Kyoto protocol as unworkable, will next month unveil an environmental
package that focuses on improving air quality, but says little about
global warming, officials and activists say.

Change - Impacts and Adaptation
The Government of Canada's Climate Change Impacts
and Adaptation Program provides funding for research and activities
to improve our knowledge of Canadas vulnerability to climate
change, to better assess the risks and benefits posed by climate
change and to build the foundation upon which appropriate decisions
on adaptation can be made. The Program also facilitates interaction
between stakeholders and researchers through support of the Canadian
Climate Impacts and Adaptation Research Network (C-CIARN).
Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation: A Canadian Perspective
provides a review of the recent Canadian impacts
and adaptation research (post-1997) and also highlights results
from research funded by the Impacts and Adaptation component of
the Climate Change Action Fund. The report provides information
on various sectors such as water resources, agriculture, forestry,
fisheries, coastal zone and health, as well as general information
on impacts and adaptation, advances in research techniques and the
remaining knowledge gaps.
Sector-specific chapters will be posted on this web site over the
next few months. The final report will be available early in 2003.

Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) is a recognized
leader in energy efficiency; renewable energy; environmentally friendly
technologies; forest management; and scientific assessment, monitoring
and adaptation planning. In each of these areas, NRCan activities
related to climate change have helped to lay the foundation for
a national strategy to address climate change.
