CBT to host climate change workshop

On Oct. 14, CBT (Columbia Basin Trust) will host a free one-day session aimed at providing local governments and community supporters with the latest information on scientific projections, local impacts, and examples of how communities can start preparing for opportunities and risks associated with climate change.

The workshop will take place at the Prestige Lakeside Resort in Nelson, and will kick off with a breakfast at 9 a.m. and run until 5 p.m. Climate change technical experts and resource people and community supporters will be available throughout the day for discussion and consultation. The workshop will provide a forum for communities to exchange ideas on their climate change adaptation plans

CBT is committed to taking action on climate change and actively engaging with the people living in the Columbia Basin. CBT will continue to act as a convener and facilitator and support existing and emerging climate change initiatives as part of its long-term commitment to support people in the Columbia Basin to achieve social, economic and environmental well-being and self-sufficiency for present and future generations. This workshop is one opportunity for residents and communities to provide CBT with input on how best to provide support in the future.
