Communities across the country are experiencing the impacts from climate change and extreme weather. The bill continues to grow while the funds available to respond are finite. How do we evaluate the rising costs and share the burden in responding across government, industry and the public?
This session will start by sharing the results of recent research conducted by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and Insurance Bureau of Canada on the estimated costs for adapting infrastructure to existing impacts. The session will open with a short set of panel presenters to set the context, followed by a fireside chat with two communities from Canada’s north and east coast where the associated costs of climate change are expected to be highest.
