Preparations for the Prairies chapter of the next National Climate Change Adaptation Assessment are now underway. A new, more user-driven approach is being taken to inform development of the assessment. Therefore, we are interested in understanding the key questions that stakeholders across the Prairies would like to see answered.

Toward this goal, the Prairie Regional Adaptation Collaborative (PRAC) asks for your participation in completing the survey questionnaire below. Simply complete the survey by April 24, 2018, and your input will be compiled to help shape and inform development of the Prairies Chapter of the National Climate Change Adaptation Assessment.

Writing of the chapter will be led by Dr. Dave Sauchyn, University of Regina. The previous National Climate Change Adaptation Assessment was published in 2008.

The PRAC is an initiative aimed at helping decision-makers in the Prairie provinces target local climate change issues and help integrate climate change adaptation considerations into decision making in policy, planning and operations. It is a federal-provincial cost-shared program between Natural Resources Canada and the governments of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) acts as the secretariat for PRAC.
