Prairie Wildfire Risk in a Changing Climate | A PRAC Webinar

July 2, 2020

This webinar, hosted by the Prairies Regional Adaptation Collaborative (PRAC), focused on how fire risk on the Canadian Prairies is projected to change due to climate change and how different levels of governments are currently working to reduce these risks and protect communities.

An overview presentation provided an introduction to wildfire risks in the Prairie provinces and how these risks are projected to change. Representatives from the Government of Saskatchewan, the Prince Albert Grand Council, and the community of Napatak presented on what they are doing to manage current and future wildfire risk.

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.
