Abstract. The effects of climatic variability and change on Canadian agriculture have become an important research field since the early s. In this paper, we seek to synthesize this research, focusing on agricultural adaptation, a purposeful proactive or reactive response to changes associated with climate, and influenced by many by: climate change and climate variability on crop yields and farmers’ income.

We conclude that for reliable projections of the impacts of climate change on agriculture, adaptation should not be seen anymore as a last step in a vulnerability assessment, but as integrated part of the models used to simulate crop yields.

From Impacts to Adaptation: Canada in a Changing Climate presents the current understanding of the ongoing and future impacts of climate change on Canada and the country’s ability to adapt.

Regional chapters in the book identify key issues and provide examples of adaptation initiatives in British Columbia, the Prairies, Ontario, Quebec, Atlantic Canada and. The multi-volume reference focuses on one of the key aspects of climate change: adaptation and how to handle its impacts on physical, biotic and human systems, analyzing the social and normative scientific concerns and presenting the tools, approaches and methods aimed at management of climate change impacts.

Changes in the climate are already having devastating impacts on ecological, economic and human systems in northern regions. Current levels of exposure to climate-related changes and sensitivities, as well as limitations in adaptive capacity, make some northern systems and populations particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change.

Identify adaptation strategies that will address the likely impacts of climate change as well as the current stresses analyzed in step 3. Link these strategies with other important trends, like the transition to sustainable farming, energy and water efficiency, the implementation of renewable technologies, and sustainable land use master plans.

One of the most serious impacts of climate change is how it is affecting water resources around the world. Water is intimately tied to other resource and social issues such as food supply, health, industry, transportation and ecosystem integrity.

Glacial melting is one of the most striking and visual signs of the impacts of climate change. In order to establish a point of reference for the assessment of climate change impacts we have used a climate scenario from the PRUDENCE project (Christensen et al., ), based on the IPCC A2 global emissions scenario (Nakicienovic and Swart, ).This scenario was also used by the PESETA project (Ciscar et al., a, Ciscar et al., b), and projects an increase in Cited by: Get this from a library.
