Workshop on Climate Data, Modelling and Application for Planning in Manitoba - January 2012


Manitoba Conservation and Natural Resources Canada, in partnership with Stantec, the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), Genivar, the University of Regina, PARC, the University of Winnipeg, Manitoba Hydro and Smart Science Solutions, conducted a workshop on climate data and modelling. 

The workshop was intended to explore three principal areas:

1. Understanding the current climate data and climate projection data needs and applications for stakeholders active in climate impact assessment in the province of Manitoba.

2. Defining the conditions necessary for getting climate projection data right for Manitoba adaptation assessments.

3. Collaborating and communicating climate data for Manitoba regions and relevant impact assessment findings.
