Subject

The purpose of this project is to perform a policy scan to review, analyze and report on current municipal policies within the Haliburton Kawartha Pine Ridge district in order to identify policy gaps and opportunities regarding climate change mitigation and adaptation, as well as provide recommendations on how to address these issues.Throughout this policy scan, it was found that many municipalities have made mentions of climate change and its impacts on the environment. However more focus can be put on the connection between climate change and human health because climate change is a pressing threat to human health and may be addressed through municipal policies.
