    Atlantic Climate Adaptation Solutions Association (Opens in a new Window)

    The Atlantic Climate Adaptation Solutions (ACASA) Project is a partnership among the provincial governments of Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and New Brunswick, and regional stakeholders including nonprofits, tribal governments, and industry. ACASA applied for and received a grant from Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) as part of the Regional Adaptation Collaborative (RAC) Program to build a collaborative effort to address regional climate change impacts. This site primarily provides access to ACASA's projects, publications, and other research outputs that help Atlantic Canadians better prepare for, and adapt to, climate change.
