Climate Change Guidance Framework: Highlights Report 2021


The International Joint Commission (IJC) developed a Climate Change Guidance Framework (CCGF) in 2017 to help the people who manage the basins that straddle the United States - Canada border better understand and anticipate expected impacts from climate change. Prior reports identified the need for a central repository or tool through which IJC control, watershed, and pilot watershed boards could learn from each other and apply lessons learned as they plan for the future of their watersheds. This 2021 Highlights Report is a step toward that goal, by identifying and surveying recent ongoing activities, and recommending a more functional mechanism for information sharing and collaboration than the periodic reports published previously.
