Demand that the Quebec government #DoBetter
Adaptation seeks to enable populations to live in an environment that is disrupted by the effects of climate change. While efforts to mitigate the impacts of climate change are essential, adaptation efforts have become vital.
Quebec needs an adaptation plan to better prepare our communities to cope with the impacts of climate change and biodiversity loss.
The government must make better decisions on energy and economic development, which recognize the limits of resource availability and consider environmental justice.
For example by:
which filter water, reduce erosion and capture carbon.
which allow us to work towards greater food autonomy.
Development that considers the limits of available resources and the impacts on the living world.
So that the well-being of citizens is at the heart of decision-making.
In order to better manage the impacts of climate change and the loss of biodiversity, we need to go past this strictly “accounting” narrative around emissions reduction and focus more on adaptation.
We, the citizens of Quebec, must demand that the Quebec government change its perspective and focus more on the need to adapt to the effects of climate change and halt the decline of biodiversity. We must call on our government to better consider the impacts of its decisions on the Quebec territory and all that lives on it.
The government of Quebec must do #DoBetter.
We deserve a vision that goes beyond GHGs—a global vision and a collaborative approach that puts environmental issues at the heart of the government's work, free from partisanship.
