Development and Delivery of a Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Training Program for Professional Planners in Ontario (2018–2021)
In partnership with the Ontario Professional Planners and Risk Sciences International, the Climate Risk Institute is developing a climate change adaptation training program. Built around a series of modules and case studies, the training program will be delivered to Ontario planners to (i) build an understanding of the most recent science on climate change, (ii) provide methods to integrate climate change impacts and adaptation into planning contexts and processes, and (iii) to accelerate uptake of adaptation broadly within the profession. The project will benefit Ontario Planners by providing new, focused training that is responsive to their needs, and builds their capacity to incorporate climate change adaptation into practice. Ontario Planners will increase their ability to understand climate risks and undertake climate change adaptation solutions in the public interest. This initiative is possible with support from Natural Resources Canada.
