Regional Adaptation Collaborative (RAC)
Over the last several years, the Government of Canada has funded programs designed to help Canadians adapt to the impacts of climate change. The Regional Adaptation Collaborative (RAC) Program is part of this investment. It is a three-year, $30 million, program delivered in cooperation with all provinces and territories.
The Governments of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador partnered to deliver the Atlantic portion of this program. The Atlantic Regional Adaptation Collaborative, administered through the Atlantic Climate Adaptation Solutions Association (ACASA), worked to develop tools and resources that can help decision makers address:
- coastal erosion,
- coastal and inland flooding,
- infrastructure design, and
- groundwater management.
From 2009 to 2012, Natural Resources Canada provided $3.5 Million to the region. The Atlantic Provinces contributed an additional $4.6 Million.
