Mar 22: Webinar on Canadian Cities Taking Climate Action


Building Adaptive and Resilient Communities Program: Canadian Cities Taking Action
March 22nd, 2016
1:00 pm ET 

Cities have a key role to play in mitigating the causes of and adapting their communities to the effects of  a changing climate. As the level of government closest to residents, municipalities are well-positioned to develop effective strategies to protect the health of people and the livability of communities.

This webinar will focus on the Building Adaptive and Resilient Communities program (BARC), which is aimed at helping communities develop and implement their climate change adaptation plans. Webinar participants will receive information on the BARC tools and methodology, as well as recommendations on how the program can best be tailored to their community’s specific needs.
