- Landscaping your yard? Consider low impact development (LID). It mimics the natural movement of water, bringing water back to the land rather than into the storm drains. Rain gardens, for example, collect, absorb and filter stormwater runoff and allow it to soak into the ground.
- Make sure your home is safe from floods - get a flood prevention home check-up (EPCOR).
- Lighten your lifestyle with tips from our Change Habits For Climate Guide.

Beginning in 2016, the City and various stakeholders worked together to develop a climate change adaptation strategy that focuses on key areas such as those mentioned above. The Climate Resilient Edmonton: Adaptation Strategy and Action Plan was presented to the Executive Committee of City Council in November 2018.
