The seminar was organized by Climate Adaptation and Resilience Lab, University of Alberta and Canada Research Chair in Cumulative Impacts of Environmental Change, University of Northern British Columbia.
As part of the activities of the UArctic Thematic Network on Local-scale Planning, Climate Change and Resilience, this online seminar series will address issues related to climate change impacts and responses in the Arctic/ sub-Arctic. In particular, this series will explore how local government decision-makers and stakeholders engage climate change discourse, how impacts manifest in different locations, and the level of priority given to policy and planning responses.
Young scientists from University of Leeds (United Kingdom), University of Alberta (Canada), Université Laval (Canada), NArFU (Russia) presented their research reports on the topic.
There was an interesting and lively discussion after the participants’ presentations. After that all the scientists concluded that such meetings are very useful because of great opportunitiy of information exchange, case-study sharing and making new academic contacts in frame of global issue of climate change.
