Client City of Toronto
Location Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Schedule March 2018 – March 2019
SSG worked with the City of Toronto to develop a framework for building a resilient Toronto. This project built upon our emissions modelling scenario for the city, TransformTO. The adaptation framework includes a review of Toronto’s resilience assessment, convening expert stakeholders, a scan of best practices and cost benefit analysis, ultimately building a Resilience Strategy for the City.
It provides a clear structure to the challenges presented by a changing climate and the pathways forward ensuring City staff, partners, stakeholders and community members all have a common starting place for collaboration. The Framework outlines the priority pathways where there is the greatest need for adaptation through collective action planning. It also provides a lens that can be applied to new and existing projects to ensure climate resilience shapes the outcomes.
