Connecting communities to build resilience…


Logo_png

Not only a hub for knowledge sharing and networking on local resilience, the Forum also represents a preliminary milestone of the Adaptation Changemakers project delivered by ICLEI and funded through the Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ Climate Adaptation Partner Grants available through FCMs Municipalities for Climate Innovation Program (MCIP). MCIP, delivered by FCM and funded by the Government of Canada, is a five-year, $75-million program designed to support and encourage municipalities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to climate change. The Adaptation Changemakers Project has brought together 8 communities from across the country to develop locally relevant climate change adaptation strategies. Join us in St. John’s to network with these participating communities and learn from them about their adaptation achievements thus far.

Join us in Victoria to hear more about the project, meet the municipal project leads and regional experts, and learn from them about their adaptation achievements thus far.

The participating municipalities include:

Newfoundland & Labrador

Ontario

British Columbia


Together for Climate

ICLEI Canada has received two years of funding from the Real Estate Foundation of BC (REFBC) to work with 8 local and regional governments in British Columbia to develop climate adaptation strategies. This builds capacity for each community to engage with local stakeholders and receive input from a wide range of experts. The Together for Climate project also provides these communities with the opportunity to come together and share their challenges and successes based on their unique strengths and risks, while connecting them to a broader network of practitioners working on climate adaptation across the province and country. Through assessing their vulnerability and risk to climatic changes, each community is able to prioritize action-setting and create a plan that is locally relevant and implementation-ready.
