45 potential adaptation actions are presented under seven strategic directions to guide the implementation of the strategy. These actions were developed specifically for the Corporation of the City of Thunder Bay to formalize and build upon the City’s existing adaptive capacity, increase resilience, and reduce risk.
Details relevant to the implementation of each action, including primary leads, potential partnership sectors, associated plans and strategies, estimated costs, estimated duration, and timelines can be found in the Implementation Framework in Appendix A. Each action has a number which corresponds to goals and objectives it seeks to realize and as well as its priority ranking. For example, action 1.1a relates to goal one, objective one and has a higher priority than action 1.1b.
The prioritization of the actions may change to reflect the City of Thunder Bay’s existing decision-making processes, evaluation, annual review, and external factors. Key actions and quick wins have been identified based on the priority rating of each action, their role as precedent actions, estimated duration, and estimated costs.
