This collaborative climate change adaptation project involves a team of biodiversity scientists and policy analysts from the University of Alberta; Miistakis Institute; Alberta Innovates Technology Futures; the Government of Alberta, and the Alberta Biodiversity Monitoring Institute.

The team assessed hundreds of wild species, ranging from prairie flowers to backyard birds, to devise proactive strategies for preventing or reducing harm from climate change. The group’s findings expand the data already held by the Alberta Biodiversity Monitoring Institute, which measures and reports on the status and trends of hundreds of species and habitats at permanent terrestrial and wetland monitoring sites across the province.

Adapt-action is an online tool developed by the Miistakis Institute as part of the Biodiversity Management and Climate Change Adaptation (BMCCA) Project, led by the Alberta Biodiversity Monitoring Institute. It was created for Alberta municipalities to help them identify and understand the potential implications of climate change for their communities and respond proactively.
