The Ontario Centre for Climate Impacts and Adaptation Resources (OCCIAR) presents a Two-Part Webinar Series:
Collaboration to Enhance Resilience to Climate Change:
An emerging trend in climate change risk management is a systems perspective considering the interdependencies of infrastructure providers. The first webinar provides an overview of how the City of Toronto has engaged internal divisions and external organizations, such as Toronto Hydro and other utilities, to better understand and manage climate risk. The second webinar provides a more detailed look at how Toronto Hydro is taking practical actions to adapt to climate change.
