The PRAC is Evolving!
For more than 10 years, the PRAC has worked to raise climate adaptation awareness and build the climate resilience of governments, Indigenous Peoples, communities, the private sector and others across the Prairie Provinces.
As its fourth phase comes to an end, its successful efforts to increase capacity, build relationships, exchange knowledge, and develop skills to engage in climate adaptation is evolving.
ClimateWest, the new regional hub for climate data and services in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta, is now picking up the baton from the PRAC. ClimateWest provides support to people, communities, businesses, and governments across the Prairie region to adapt to a changing climate.
ClimateWest is a partnership by the Government of Manitoba, the Government of Saskatchewan, the Government of Alberta, and, at the federal level, Environment and Climate Change Canada. It draws on the strengths and expertise of its three additional founding partners: the Prairie Climate Centre (PCC), the Prairie Adaptation Research Collaborative (PARC), and the International Institute for Sustainable Development.
