Join ICLEI Canada for an upcoming webinar and information session on the new Great Lakes Climate Change Adaptation Project! This webinar will be a great opportunity for municipalities to learn about the project details, including expended timelines, budgets, how to apply, and more!
Under the Canada-Ontario Agreement (COA) Respecting the Great Lakes, the Ontario Ministry of Environment and Climate Change is supporting a project, led by ICLEI Canada, to increase climate change resilience for Great Lakes communities. Over a two-year period, ICLEI will engage approximately 30 communities in two projects aimed at building capacity on resilience planning and implementation:
A) Training the Trainer: Engaging Stakeholders in Climate Change Assessments - This project, targeting 16 communities throughout the Great Lakes watershed, will help municipalities learn how to use climate change modelling data to identify local vulnerabilities, assess and prioritize their risks, and begin developing adaptation plans.
B) Collaborative Implementation Groups: Working Together to Move from Planning to Action - This project, targeting 12 communities throughout the Great Lakes watershed, will help municipalities move from planning to action on local resilience by: identifying implementation ready adaptation initiatives, securing funding for the initiatives, documenting key lessons learned via a case study series, and leveraging future activities to support the actual implementation of local initiatives.
