Webinar: Information and Funding for First Nations Climate Change Adaptation Planning
Information and Funding for First Nations Climate Change Adaptation Planning
January 25th, 2018
This webinar provides an opportunity for communities to learn more about Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada’s First Nation Adapt Program and to gain a better understanding of the future BC-specific climate information available through the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium.
The First Nation Adapt Program provides climate change adaptation funding for communities to identify region-specific priorities, impacts and opportunities for climate change projects. The program also works closely with communities to integrate the best scientific and Indigenous Knowledge on climate indicators, flooding exposure, and future climate projections. Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium provides climate information to communities to better understand climate change specific to their region, how the region will be impacted, and what they can do to prepare.
Presenters: Tom Duncan, First Nation Adapt Program, Indigenous and Norther Affairs Canada Trevor Murdock, Lead, Regional Climate Impacts, Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium
