Climate Change Adaptation Initiative

The Town of Oakville is one of 12 signatory municipalities working with ICLEI, Local Governments for Sustainability, to create a corporate Climate Change Adaption Plan. Endorsed by Council in May 2011, town staff is moving through a five milestone process. Milestone 1 was completed in early 2011 and Milestone 2 is currently being completed.

ICLEI’s Five Milestones for Climate Adaptation methodology provides a structured approach to adaptation planning which moves participating local governments through a series of progressive steps. Each milestone builds on the findings of the previous milestone, however, the methodology as a whole provides opportunities to re-evaluate and review findings and decisions.
