The Getting to Implementation Framework is a guide to help communities move Community Energy Plans from a vision to implementation. It includes 10 strategies that provide insights, advice and a proposed path forward to foster widespread political, staff and stakeholder support, build staff and financial capacity, and embed energy into local plans, policies and processes to support implementation.
The 11 adaptation strategies developed here are meant to guide municipalities from a vision on adaptation, to being fully adaptive and resilient to climate events. The strategies will build internal staff and financial capacity, draw upon stakeholders and local knowledge, and ultimately integrate climate adaptation into strategic municipal plans, policies, and processes on an ongoing basis.
Our approach draws upon ICLEI Canada’s Building Adaptive & Resilient Communities (BARC) Program, which offers a comprehensive way for communities to address climate change impacts, and develop an adaptation plan. See more about the BARC Program here.

launch The 2020 Green Municipal Fund’s (GMF) Energy Roadmap will help elected officials and municipal staff achieve a more energy-efficient community.
launch Talking it Through: A Discussion Guide for Local Government Staff on Climate Adaptation, was just launched and is full of helpful information on how municipal staff can have better conversations about climate adaptation with senior decision makers and elected officials. The resource is accompanied with a PowerPoint template that you can customize with your community’s climate data to help facilitate the types of conversations described within the Discussion Guide.
