Moving from Planning to Implementation on Climate Change Adaptation
Wednesday March 22, 2023 | 11:00 am to 1:30 pm ADT | Halifax, NS and Online
Developing adaptation plans is an important process that is capable of delivering positive outcomes; however, it can also overestimate the ability of planning to reduce the risks from extreme weather or other weather-related hazards. How can communities in Atlantic provinces transition from ongoing planning activities to the implementation of actions that will deliver the intended outcomes?
Join us and CLIMAtlantic for an interactive workshop designed specifically for communities in Atlantic provinces on how to transition from planning to implementation.
Presenters will discuss implementation drivers and constraints, as well as what funds, tools, and resources are available to help Atlantic communities implement adaptation and resilience actions. Following the presentation portion of the workshop, participants will have the chance to discuss the barriers they face in their communities, brainstorm partnership ideas, and explore ways to build momentum and advance the implementation of adaptation initiatives.
This interactive hybrid event will take place at the Halifax Central Library in Halifax, NS and online. It will feature a variety of guest presenters, facilitated discussions, and a networking lunch for the in-person workshop participants. Simultaneous translation from English to French will be provided for virtual participants.
In partnership with ICLEI Canada and CLIMAtlantic, the Community Solutions Network is delivering an innovation workshop for municipal city staff and Indigenous leaders from across the region of Atlantic Canada who are interested in climate adaptation and resilience, using data and technology approaches. The Community Solutions Network is a program of Future Cities Canada. Led by Evergreen, the Network is designed to help communities build service area capacity and improve the lives of residents using data and connected technology approaches. This program is funded by the Government of Canada.
