Islanders are invited to give feedback on recommendations that will guide the province’s strategy to address the impacts of climate change.
The University of Prince Edward Island’s (UPEI) Climate Lab created the Prince Edward Island Climate Change Adaptation Recommendations Draft Report after receiving public feedback this summer. Online feedback on the report can be provided at www.princeedwardisland.ca/adaptation before October 20, and three public engagement sessions are scheduled for next month.
Government’s Climate Change Secretariat is leading the development of a climate change action plan that will consider the final adaptation recommendations. A total of 86 recommendations were provided for adaptation action by provincial government and stakeholders within the following 10 key sectors: agriculture; education and outreach; energy; fish and aquaculture; forestry and biodiversity; insurance; properties and infrastructure; public health and safety; tourism; and water.
The public is asked to provide input through a series of public engagement sessions and through online submissions. The three public engagement sessions take place in: Charlottetown on October 17 at 5 pm at UPEI, Andrew Hall Building (Room 142); Summerside on October 18 at 7 pm at the Summerside Community Church; and Montague on October 19 at 7 pm at the Riverhouse Inn.
