A Tool for Adaptation Decision-Making in Oil Sands Reclamation under Risk of Climate Change

There is a need in the energy sector to increase understanding with respect to how businesses and organizations manage risks and adapt to current and anticipated climate conditions. Documenting and sharing information about these practices will help promote standardization in the measures, tools, and information used as the basis for strategic decision-making. In the case of the Alberta Oil Sands, no quantitative landscape-level reclamation planning tools are yet available to operators to aid in the assessment of climate change uncertainties of the development of adaptation strategies to ensure successful reclamation of oil sands disturbances.
