Thus, in an exploratory manner and with the objective of initiating an examination and contemplation of climate change adaptation measures, a few adaptation options were reviewed and, where possible, their economic, environmental and social impacts considered. This research made it possible to uncover certain limitations and opportunities specific to each option and to illustrate the complexity of their analysis on the basis of sustainable development criteria. Additional studies would therefore be necessary to be in a position to effectively determine those that are in line with this perspective and to discover new ones. A number of initiatives are emerging both in Canada and abroad so that adaptations to climate change be taken into consideration now. The impacts of climate change go beyond the framework of navigation activities alone, and the Navigation Consensus Building Committee believes that, in the coming years, an examination of the future vocation of the St. Lawrence from the perspective of sustainable development and a more integrated management must be undertaken.
