Ontario's water and land resources are at risk from climate change.

Conservation Authorities have identified and are responding to local impacts, such as:

Conservation Authorities support development of Ontario’s Low Carbon Economy

Conservation Authorities are transitioning to a greener economy by supporting more renewable sources of energy, practicing water conservation, reducing emissions, planning and implementing climate change adaptation, and building increased resiliency in watersheds through watershed management programs.

This approach slows down our consumption of resources, reduces our waste and emissions, and is more cost efficient. In this way, we can adapt to continuously unpredictable conditions and live within the means of natural world.
