Moderator: Jo-Ellen Parry
Presenters: Dinah Tambalo and others TBA
Communities and businesses throughout the Prairie Provinces are increasingly managing and preparing for more frequent and intense extreme events such as flooding, droughts and wildfires. This session will provide an opportunity for practitioners engaged in these efforts to share their experiences and learn from one another as they work to ensure that their communities and businesses are better prepared.
An opening presentation will describe how collaboration between the Prairie region’s provincial governments is building interactive networks and successfully engaging target audiences in adaptation. Adaptation practitioners will then discuss key climate adaptation issues within sectors of critical importance to the Prairie region in world café-style table discussions. These discussions will have a strong focus on knowledge sharing, identifying commonly experienced barriers, informing adaptation needs and priorities in the region, and generating solutions to these challenges. The session will be convened by the Prairies Regional Adaptation Collaborative (PRAC).
