These resources summarize the activities and findings from a three-year study that assessed the barriers and opportunities that landowners face when they consider climate change adaptation strategies.
Data was collected on the costs and benefits of participating in stream rehabilitation. As well, a variety of biophysical parameters were measured, assessing stream health in relation to farm-scale land management practices.
The report and appendices include in-depth discussions of the project’s data and results.
Four research summaries cover the project’s key findings:
- Barriers and opportunities to collaborative environmental decision-making and collaborative action
- General awareness among small landowners about climate change
- The ability of a single landowner to improve the state of the aquatic ecosystem on their land
- An estimation of monetary values for the costs and benefits of activities outlined in a Group Environmental Farm Plan
