Event Description: 
The Ontario Centre for Climate Impacts and Adaptation Resources is pleased to announce Creating Adaptive Policies webinar, scheduled for  Tuesday, January 30 at 1:00pm to 2:00pm ET (10am - 11am PST).
 
Presented by: Darren Swanson (associate of the International Institute for Sustainable Development, a consultant to the United Nations Development Group, and director of Novel Futures Corporation)
.
This webinar gives an overview of the seven principles for creating adaptive policies and presents example applications of the ADAPTool to climate change adaptation policies in four Canadian provinces.
 
Public policies that cannot perform effectively under today’s complex, dynamic and uncertain conditions run the risk of not achieving their intended purpose. Instead of helping, they may actually hinder the ability of individuals, communities and businesses to cope with and adapt to change.
