Moderators: Anne Blondlot and Jamie Hewitt

Presenters: Emily MacNair, Sarah Delisle and Kyla Milne

Climate change impacts will continue and intensify in the future, creating both opportunities and challenges for the Canadian agricultural sector. In order to achieve innovative and successful adaptation, it is crucial to increase awareness and to engage agricultural stakeholders while taking into account the realities and dynamics of agricultural operations.

During this session, moderated by AAFC and Ouranos, three speakers from British Columbia, Quebec and Nova Scotia, will present how they foster collaboration between a wide range of stakeholders (e.g., farmers, crop advisors, local, provincial and federal government, private sector) and build their adaptive capacity, and how this leads to concrete actions on adaptation. During a panel discussion that will follow the three presentations, the speakers as well as the audience will be invited to share experiences, insights and lessons learned about engaging various stakeholders in planning and implanting actions on adaptation.
