7:00pm - 9:00pm

Hotter, drier summers? Implications and adaptations for B.C.

What are the implications of last year’s record breaking dry summer in British Columbia? Hydro-climatic projections suggest that dry summers like last year’s may happen more often in future, with significant consequences for our region.

Join the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium (PCIC) and the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions (PICS) for this panel featuring experts in hydro-climatic change, agriculture, fisheries, water supply and forestry who will discuss climate impacts in their sectors and solutions for B.C.

Presenters: Emily McNair (BC Agricultiure & Food Climate Action Initiative), Kim Hyatt (Fisheries and Oceans Canada), Robbie Hember (PICS post-doctoral fellow), Anna Warwick Sears (Executive Director, Okanagan Basin Water Board), and Johanna Wolf (Climate Action Secretariat).

This panel will be moderated by PICS’ Executive Director, Dr. Sybil Seitzinger.
