Climate Change Reports

Manitoba Wildlands' Climate Change Reports page features publications from civil society groups, including non-government organizations (NGOs), environmental NGOs (ENGOs), faith groups, labour groups, industry and educational and research institutes. Although reports may come from anywhere in the world, our focus will be on Canadian sources.

We have tried to keep categories simple and clear. Some reports could go in more than one category, so if it is not found in one category, keep looking! Each month we will feature one or two new climate change reports in our 'Featured Report' box found below.

Manitoba Wildlands does not necessarily recommend or endorse the contents of publications we list here. The source/author of the report or other material is responsible for its content, factual basis and opinion(s) expressed within.
