The analysis is driven by the results of the National Forum on Water Adaptation to Climate Change held in Toronto in March 2012, and by an extensive review of water adaptation programs and literature.

The report is a collaboration between the Canadian Climate Forum, the Canadian Water Resources Association, and Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) with significant contributions by provincial, municipal and aboriginal governments, watershed agencies, academia, businesses and NGOs from across Canada. It was funded by Natural Resources Canada’s Regional Adaptation Collaborative Program.
