Guide for Assessment of Hydrologic Effects of Climate Change in Ontario

This Guide provides a methodology for conducting assessments of the effects of climate change on water resources in Ontario to both inform management and adapt decision making. These assessments will need to examine system vulnerabilities; options for operations, management and adaptation; public education; and methods to achieve robust and resilient water resource systems into the future. The methodology builds upon conventional water resource assessments by guiding the user through additional stages including selecting future climate scenarios, acquiring information, developing future climate time series information, using these future climates to drive hydrologic models, and assessing the simulated impacts. The overall objective of the Guide is to establish a standard procedure for conducting climate change impact assessments of hydrologic systems in Ontario and thus, facilitate the mainstreaming of climate change impact assessments.
