Canada’s physical infrastructure and coastal communities could face significant damage over the next 20 years and top the list of areas most at risk by climate change, a government-backed study released on Thursday showed.

The study was commissioned by the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat, the federal body in charge of government spending, and carried out by the Council of Canadian Academies (CCA), a nonprofit group that convenes academic experts for research purposes.

“Canada’s unique geographic, environmental, and social identity shapes the hazards that it faces and its exposure to climate-related risks,” Eric M. Meslin, president and CEO of the CCA, said in the press release.
