Virtual Conference on Adaptation to Climate Change

September 23 @ 12:30 pm - September 24 @ 4:30 pm ADT

Integrating Nature in Adapting to a Changing Climate

Annual Conference of the New Brunswick Climate Change Adaptation Collaborative, in partnership with the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies

Nature-based solutions to climate impacts are cutting edge ways to adapt to climate change. Keys to understanding these approaches include not only the technical aspects, but the financial implications as well as the relationships between stakeholders in infrastructure maintenance and adaptation.

If you are interested in exploring nature-based approaches and how best to present these options, this is the conference for you — the municipal planners, building contractors, developers, engineers and NGOs working on climate adaptation.

Highlights:

  • Keynote Speaker: Deborah Harford, ACT Simon Fraser University, expert on effective adaptation strategies at all levels of government
  • How project leaders are using nature-based approaches
  • The economic case for moving towards nature-based approaches
  • Overcoming obstacles to adapting with nature from several perspectives
  • Making nature more effective in adapting to climate change
  • Working together to build resilient, greener communities
