Creating Resilient Communities - Planning for a Changing Climate

0 (0votes)

Communities across Alberta are experiencing the impacts of climate change from events such as wildfires, heat waves, floods, and ice storms.  The Municipal Climate Change Action Centre, a partnership of Alberta Municipalities, Rural Municipalities of Alberta, and the Government of Alberta, is providing up to $80,000 per project for municipalities and Indigenous communities to invest in climate resilience capacity building as part of its Climate Resilience Capacity Building ProgramMorrison Hershfield is hosting a webinar in April to dive deeper into the climate resilience components – please look out for a future post with more details.  


As a prequalified consultant for the Capacity Building Program, Morrison Hershfield and our partners Nodelcorp Consulting Inc. and Shared Value Solutions can support municipalities and Indigenous communities across Alberta with climate mitigation, adaptation, and resiliency planning, community engagement and training services. 


Our team understands that there are no “one size fits all” engagement and climate resilience solutions, and we will work with your community to develop a project-specific scope and schedule that meets the needs of your community.  We have created a 12–18-week typical project work plan to include the following “full-package” climate resilience components for an individual community:


  1. enhance climate literacy,
  2. complete climate-risk assessments, and
  3. create climate adaptation plans.
