Adaptive Capacity

Adaptive capacity is an essential component of climate change adaptation. Strong adaptive capacity can reduce our vulnerability to the impacts of climate change. Our adaptive capacity is influenced by a number of factors including education, resources, infrastructure, and health.

This section presents current data that help us to understand community perceptions and behaviours related to measures that people can take to manage climate impacts and the potential health risks. This data is primarily informed by the Rapid Risk Factor Surveillance System (RRFSS) survey, which provides data on health-related behaviours among Ontario adults aged 18 and over.
