Climate Change Action in Lincoln

In May 2021, Town of Lincoln Council passed a motion to immediately declare a climate crisis in Lincoln. Council recognizes the urgent need to take action to mitigate the effects of climate change and to deepen the Town’s commitment to protecting its economy, ecosystems, and community from climate change.

Climate change is already having an impact on global economies, communities, and built and natural environments. It remains the most significant global threat to quality of life and security – for current and future generations. Bold and collective action at global, national, and community levels is required to effect change, build resilience, mitigate future threats, and ensure a prosperous future for generations to come.

The Town of Lincoln aims to take such action and contribute to the global shift towards sustainable growth and resilience. The Corporate Climate Adaptation Plan (CCAP) has been developed by the Town of Lincoln as a guideline to support and inform climate adaptation at the corporate municipal level. It will outline how the municipality as a corporation will adapt its assets, operations, and services to the current and future impacts of climate change.
