Our community-based work has revealed that a serious gap exists between adaptation planning and action. There is too much of a time delay between community planning and the ability to implement adaptation strategies. Being able to immediately implement adaptation actions identified through planning is essential to the long-term resilience of communities – especially small, rural, and Indigenous communities that are most vulnerable to the increasing, back-to-back impacts of climate change, including floods, fires, and drought.

To address this gap, TRI has launched a new Adaptation Action Fund to help eliminate funding barriers for communities to take early action on adaptation. Donations can be made by e-transfer to [email protected] (remember to include your address for the charitable tax receipt that will issued within 5 working days or less), through Canada Helps by selecting Adaptation Action Fund on the pulldown menu or for major gifts, by contacting our philanthropy specialist, Ms. Sandra Lunder: [email protected].

Our goals are to circumvent the long delays between identifying climate adaptation strategies and being able to implement by having enough capacity in this fund to action adaptation strategies immediately upon being identified.
