Case studies of adaptation to climate change in the Yukon mining sector: From planning and operation to remediation and restoration

Abstract:

This research examines climate change vulnerability and adaptation in three stages in the life of a mine, (i) inception and planning, (ii) operating, and (iii) post-closure (or remediation and restoration) through case studies located in the Yukon Territory, Canada. The report aims to provide insights on ways to enhance the competitiveness and adaptive capacity of the mining sector in a changing climate.
