Presented by François Hébert (DRF), research scientist at the Direction de la recherche forestière (Forest research branch) of the Ministère des Ressources naturelles et des Forêts du Québec (Quebec’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Forests), this webinar focuses on the adaptation of silviculture practices to climate change. François discusses his research projects, each one addressing one climate risk and one strategy to manage this risk.
The Shift Storm newsletter from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives can help you make sense of it all. Edited by CCPA senior researcher Hadrian Mertins-Kirkwood, this monthly newsletter recaps the latest developments in work and climate from Canada and around the world. Follow along for summaries of key research and discussions of burning issues facing workers in a shifting climate.
Mobilizing NAM knowledge with Planners report shares experiences and opinions on the planning and implementation of natural infrastructure (NI) and natural assets management (NAM) with insights on starting point for immediate action, the leverage point required to change professional norms, and partnership opportunities that build collaboration.
Upskilling for Canada's Climate Transition is an initiative of Resilience by Design Lab, a partner in CanAdapt. This applied research is conduced in collaboration with Academy for Sustainable Innovation and is funded by Future Skills Centre - Centre des Competences futures. Check out preliminary research and reflections on the question, Is Continuing Education Ready to Upskill the Workforce to Take Climate Action?
Project managers across a range of project types and industries need to be prepared for climate change in their project plans. Climate Change poses new types of project risks that could affect project timelines, budget, and outcomes (e.g., supply chain disruptions due to storms and permafrost melt; infrastructure risks due to unusual weather events causing flood damage; functions and outcome of projects).
Recent evidence indicates that the migration rate of tree species will not be sufficient to follow their suitable climate under climate change scenarios. Accordingly, research interests now focus on the capacity of local tree populations to persist in place and cope with the expected environmental change in the next decades, i.e. their adaptive capacity. This webinar gives an overview of an approach to quantify the adaptive capacity of Canadian tree species based on four axes of adaptation.
Learn about the recent advances in the quantification of three vulnerability components in Canadian forests and discover what this means for developing “climate friendly” silvicultural practices in this webinar.
In this webinar, learn how might climate change affect forest growth and what can we do about it?
This report highlights the many ways that conservation serves as a core principle of sustainable forest management in Canada, so that forests will remain healthy and resilient and continue to support and enrich the lives of Canadians for many generations.
The most recent revisions to Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI)'s forest management standard (2022) includes 2 new objectives that are focused significantly on forest management adaptation to climate change. In this webinar, Darren Sleep, PhD, Senior Director of Conservation Science and Strategies at SFI explores these new objectives that will help drive forest management adaptation to climate change across Canada.
