The objective of this meeting was to create a Roadmap for Climate Change Adaptation of our built environment and attended by municipalities and organizations involved in designing and managing these types of systems as well as agencies who may deal with direct or indirect impacts associated with these systems.
Climate Change Information Workshop—February 2, 2012
Mississippi Valley Conservation (MVC) and the Community Stewardship Council of Lanark County with Ontario Centre for Climate Impacts and Adaptation Resources (OCCIAR) brought together decision makers from across the Mississippi Valley watershed to discuss how different agencies are addressing the potential impacts of climate change on their programs.
Adapting to the effects of a changing climate touches many areas from tourism to health, to roads and planning. MVC shared its strategy for watershed management in a changing climate. Participants were encouraged to share their programs, knowledge, and ideas to help support local and watershed-wide efforts to adapt to our changing climate.
