Adaptation Canada National Symposium on Climate Change Adapation

ADAPTATION CANADA 2016: A national symposium showcasing Canada’s preparedness for managing risks associated with changing climate.

The impacts of extreme weather events and variability in climate are posing significant challenges to Canadians across the country, both in their work and personal lives. Climate models project that these changes will continue and even increase in the future. Along with reducing greenhouse gas emissions in an effort to mitigate climate change, Canada needs to adapt – that is, adjust the way it operates and makes decisions in order to assess and manage the risks associated with a changing climate.

This national symposium will provide opportunities for industry, government, non-governmental organizations, practitioners, scientific experts, decision-makers, and others to network, discuss, and learn about the latest products and tools in the field of climate change impacts and adaptation from across Canada. The symposium will include 3 days of plenary and keynote addresses, concurrent session presentations including adaptation within industry sectors such as mining, forestry, energy, transportation, and insurance. This event will highlight the multitude of research, information and tools that have been developed to understand and manage climate risks.

See What Clients Say About the Value of CRC’s Products

"After Hurricane Sandy, I was really worried about my property on Long Beach Island, NJ. Despite the immense pleasure our family derives from the house, thoughts of constant flooding and aggravation forced me to consider selling the property. Thanks to the assessment by Coastal Risk Consulting, I was reassured that our property sits on high ground and is at relatively low risk of flooding over the next two decades. The CRC report provided me with the peace of mind I needed to continue to enjoy and invest in our house. I will definitely recommend CRC to my friends and neighbors. Thanks again for providing the report."
