Resilient Land and Water Futures Forum

From extreme drought to intensified flooding, the Canadian prairies have experienced variable weather patterns for decades and this variable weather is anticipated to be exacerbated under climate change. Wascana & Upper Qu’Appelle Watersheds Association Taking Responsibility (WUQWATR) is hosting an open forum on March 4, 2020 at the University of Regina where we will explore the impacts and relationships between weather and climate variations offering response options and practices that offer synergies with sustainable development.

The expert panel of speakers will share insight via global and provincial policy on climate impacts, scientific evidence, and prairie resilience mitigation action strategies. Panel speakers include Melissa Bramham, Dr Kerri Finlay, and Dr Margot Hurlbert.

This two- hour investigative opportunity is at no cost to the public and will include a question and answer period and refreshments.

This event is brought to you by the Saskatchewan Association of Watersheds (SAW) and hosted by WUQWATR, the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy, and the University of Regina.
