The case study focuses on three of HalifACT’s most innovative and promising features to highlight how the Halifax Regional Municipality and residents are working towards a shared vision for a more resilient and healthy future for Atlantic Canada:
- Innovative Climate Financing (particularly, the introduction of a Climate Action Tax);
- Inclusive Community Engagement (with a spotlight on HRM’s blended program of community consultation and awareness-raising);
- Integrated Vision (how HalifACT is being leveraged to inform other key plans and priorities for HRM).
HalifACT is a climate action plan that outlines a long-term vision for the next 30 years, the municipality is committed to immediate action, and acknowledges that “most actions need to be undertaken within the first 10 years” if its targets are to be met.
