National Forum on Coastal Community Resilience: Local Government Initiatives to Address Sea-Level Rise and Coastal Flooding


MEOPAR’s Response Core is pleased to host the National Forum on Coastal Community Resilience: Local Government Initiatives to Address Sea-Level Rise and Coastal Flooding, an interactive virtual event, September 29 and 30, 2020.  

This event will offer a unique opportunity for people living and/or working in coastal communities on Canada’s coasts to connect and learn about coastal adaptation approaches. The Forum will bring together planners from local governments of coastal communities; researchers; representatives from First Nations, provincial and federal government agencies; and other relevant organizations, to share and discuss initiatives and innovative climate actions for addressing sea-level rise, coastal flooding, and related coastal hazards.

Please note that participation and registration in this event is by invitation only due to limited space and capacity. However, some of the event sessions may be broadcast via Facebook and presentation recordings (i.e. YouTube) and materials resulting from the Forum may be shared here, following the event.
