The purpose of this webinar will be to discuss challenges and best practices for measuring progress on adaptation at the local level. Panelists will begin by introducing monitoring and evaluation work completed to date in each of their respective municipalities. They will then discuss constraints to establishing adaptation indicators, such as uncertainty, timescales, measurement of avoided impacts, availability of data, and lack of available resources, and suggest potential strategies or recommendations for other municipalities moving forward.
Session speakers include:
- Allan Douglas, President, Climate Risk Institute
- Erin Desautels, Sustainability Planner, City of Surrey
- Tamsin Mills, Senior Sustainability Specialist, City of Vancouver
- Karina Richters, Supervisor, Environmental Sustainability and Climate Change, City of Windsor
