Held LIVE on Thursday, December 2, 2021, this training workshop offered presentations, discussions and activities on the intersection of Indigenous Knowledge and western climate data, and on how to integrate climate data and information into impact, risk, and vulnerability assessments. It also introduced participants to the use of the ClimateData.ca platform to support impact, risk, and vulnerability assessments in First Nation communities.
The workshop was supported and presented by the BC Assembly of First Nations, the Canadian Centre for Climate Services, the Prairie Climate Centre and the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium.
