PEI Climate Change Adaptation Workshops

Group touring the Island to discuss climate change projections, expected impacts, and priorities
| Community

The UPEI Climate Research Lab, in association with the Department of Communities, Land and Environment, is inviting members of the public to a series of workshops across the Island. We are asking for input on the development of the province's Climate Change Adaptation Strategy. Dr. Adam Fenech, director of the Climate Research Lab, will give a short presentation on current climate change projections, expected impacts, and discussing priority areas of concern. The goal is to identify ideas, techniques, and technologies that will better position our province to adapt to the changing climate while minimizing our contributions to climate change. Interested parties are encouraged to attend and engage in discussion on how best to adapt to current and anticipated challenges related to climate change as well as potential benefits and opportunities that may arise.
