Climate Resilience

Saskatchewan’s Climate Resilience Measurement Framework: A Prairie Resilience Commitment

The Government of Saskatchewan launched Prairie Resilience: A Made-in-Saskatchewan Climate Change Strategy in December 2017. The comprehensive climate change strategy is designed to make Saskatchewan more resilient to the climatic, economic and policy impacts of climate change. The strategy focuses on the principles of readiness and resilience to support the province and its people, reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and prepare for changing conditions – such as extreme weather, drought or wildfire.

Prairie Resilience commits the provincial government to “track and report across all areas of focus to convey progress in making our province more resilient to climate change.” The Climate Resilience Measurement Framework includes 25 indicators in five key areas, to measure progress in the face of a changing global climate.

Resilience is the ability to cope with, adapt to, and recover from stress and change.
Key areas of focus

Multiple systems need to be strengthened to enhance the resilience of the province to climate change. This includes the ability of our natural systems (including our land, water, and forests), physical infrastructure, economic sustainability, community preparedness, and the well-being of people to adapt and thrive in a changing environment and low-carbon economy.

These five key resilience areas are interconnected and promote resilience through interactions that benefit each other. For example:

  • Responsible management of our natural resources sustains habitat for plants and animals, while also providing ecological goods and services that support the province’s economy and quality of life.
  • Strengthening resilience in our highway infrastructure promotes reliable transportation for people and for businesses, while also connecting people and communities to critical goods and services during emergency events.

Climate Resilience Measures, Capacities and Targets

The Climate Resilience Measurement Framework contains a broad and balanced set of measures across the five key areas. The Government of Saskatchewan commits to track and report on the resilience framework every year. Yearly assessment and reporting may indicate where, in future years, alternative or additional policies or programs could enhance resilience.
