University of Waterloo Professor Dr. Blair Feltmate has been heading the Climate Change Adaptation Project (Canada), designed to identify priority actions for Canada to address adaptation to climate change. He will be giving a seminar on the outcomes of the project at 4.00pm on November 17th, 2011, at Hart House, University of Toronto. The seminar will include the Project’s findings relating to City Infrastructure, Biodiversity, First Nations, Agriculture, Freshwater Resources, and Property and Casualty Insurance.
In GallonDaily’s view, the federal government has frequently promised a focus on climate adaptation but has much less frequently provided details of proposed actions for public input. Dr. Feltmate’s presentation will therefore be a valuable opportunity to review and discuss initiatives that could be included in a climate adaptation program.
