Taking Action on Green Resilience: Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Synergies
PICS collaborated with SFU's Adaptation to Climate Change Team (ACT) and Green Resilience Strategies to conduct a workshop at the Livable Cities Forum. The focus was on “low carbon resilience” or “green resilience,” synergies in climate change mitigation and adaptation. About 40 representatives from government, city planners, engineers, consultants and academics participated in a green resilience matrix exercize that integrated mitigation and adaptation strategies, as well as exploring other variables such as funding mechanisms, to optimize the benefits of integrated climate change solutions. Participants identified key green resilience focus areas including research and analysis, capacity building and technical assistance and policies. A report highlighting the workshop outcomes was published in November 2017.
