Climate Resilience Framework and Reports

2020 resilience report demonstrates improved readiness for climate change

Resilience is the ability to cope with, adapt to, and recover from stress and change.

Saskatchewan's Prairie Resilience climate change strategy 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, released in November 2018, fulfills that commitment. The first resilience report was released in April 2019, presenting baselines and targets for 25 important measures of progress in the face of a changing global climate. The 2020 report continues with reporting on status and trends for each measure.

Resilience measures are assessed to be either good, fair or poor. Eighteen measures in this year's report are classified as good, an increase from 15 in the 2019 report. Six are classified as fair, and there are once again no measures with a poor status.

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.
