The Value of Natural Infrastructure | A PRAC Webinar
This webinar, hosted by the Prairies Regional Adaptation Collaborative (PRAC), focused on how municipalities are advancing adaptation to climate change through the management of natural infrastructure assets that provide municipal and ecosystem services.
The webinar contained a mix of overview presentations on the topic and community case studies from the City of Saskatoon and the Town of Cochrane.
ABOUT THE PRAIRIES REGIONAL ADAPTATION COLLABORATIVE
The PRAC is an initiative aimed at helping decision-makers in the Prairie provinces target local climate change issues and help integrate climate change adaptation considerations into decision making in policy, planning and operations. It is a federal–provincial cost-shared program between Natural Resources Canada and the governments of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) acts as the secretariat for PRAC.
