Local governments in Canada are using a variety of tools, and accessing a variety of new funding sources, to pay for adaptation actions. This webinar will cover some of the tools that have seen greater uptake/innovation including: Conventional sources (Gas Tax, Invest in Canada Funding, etc.), Merit-based funds (MCIP, GMF, MAMP, Disaster Mitigation and Adaptation Fund), and Carbon Price Revenues. Following this, presenters will share their experiences with identifying funding and financing options for adaptation plans.
