Prairie Resilience

The Government of Saskatchewan released its overarching Prairie Resilience climate change strategy in December 2017, which outlined multiple commitments across five areas designed to make Saskatchewan more resilient to the climatic, economic and policy impacts of climate change.

Output-Based Performance Standards
As part of the made-in-Saskatchewan Prairie Resilience strategy, government developed output-based performance standards that will apply to more than 40 Saskatchewan industrial facilities. These facilities generate 11 per cent (approximately 8.5 million tonnes) of total provincial emissions and are expected to reduce that portion by a total of 10 per cent by 2030.

Climate Resilience Measurement Framework
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.

Methane Action Plan
The Methane Action Plan is the Government of Saskatchewan's comprehensive approach to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from venting and flaring activities in the upstream oil and gas industry. The plan will reduce methane emissions by 4.5 million tonnes of CO2e annually by 2025.

Government has released several components of the Prairie Resilience strategy since its launch. The full strategy and its individual components are available below.

"Our climate change strategy is about protecting our people and communities as much as it is about working with industry and others to reduce emissions here in Saskatchewan. This plan is broader and bolder than a single policy such as carbon tax, and will achieve better and more meaningful outcomes over the long term." - Environment Minister Dustin Duncan
