University of Winnipeg

Winnipeg, Manitoba

On January 21, 2016, representatives of different provincial government departments, academia and the private sector gathered at the University of Winnipeg to attend a workshop organized by the Prairies Regional Adaptation Collaborative (PRAC), Managing Climate Impacts: A Workshop for Building Asset Professionals. The objectives of the session were to:

  • Build awareness and capacity among key building infrastructure decision makers and stakeholders on key concepts and climate risks to infrastructure in Manitoba;
  • ¬†Enhance knowledge on ways to strengthen the resiliency of buildings infrastructure through planning processes and decision support tools; and
  • Discuss opportunities for furthering the resiliency of buildings infrastructure in Manitoba to a changing climate and associated stressors.

The session was intended to complement a workshop held in January 2015 that primarily focused on infrastructure and resulted in the need for more guidance and communications around vulnerabilities and anticipated future risks.
