This webinar will introduce planners to climate impacts and adaptation tools that are available to help understand and plan for climate change in your community. First, Trevor Murdock (Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium) will highlight climate data and information tools, which can help planners better understand trends and future climate projections for their region. Then, Jeff Zukiwsky MCIP, RPP (All One Sky Foundation) will provide examples of adaptation planning tools, focusing on development of a toolkit called 'Climate Resilience Express'. Climate Resilience Express is a do-it-yourself guide to preparing a climate resilience action plan for communities. It was developed and tested in collaboration with communities in Alberta in 2016.
