The Prairies Regional Adaptation Collaborative is hosting a webinar on January 23 on the impacts of climate change to biodiversity in the Prairies. In this free webinar, you’ll get an overview of the climate change impacts and two case studies on approaches to address the impacts while providing other benefits.
Since 2010, the Prairies Regional Adaptation Collaborative has been providing decision makers from Canada’s prairie provinces opportunities to learn and collaborate.
The webinar on January 23 will include three presentations:
- Overview of climate change impacts on biodiversity and opportunities (Alex MacDonald and Dr. Elizabeth Nelson from Parks Canada)
- Dakota storybook/field guide for species at risk in Manitoba (Cheyenne Ironman from the Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources)
- AdaptWest project: Data for conservation planning decision making (Dr. Diana Stralberg from the University of Alberta)
The AdaptWest project is a database for climate adaptation conservation planning. It includes spatial data for biodiversity indicators and climate change impacts. The goal of the project is to provide the necessary information for decision makers to make informed land use decisions.
