Member Announcements – September 19


National Resources Canada’s Climate Resilient Coastal Communities (CRCC) Program has announced a call for proposals. The CRCC will support pilot projects to enable communities and sectors to work together to develop coordinated solutions to climate change risks in coastal regions. There is a total of $30 million to support up to 25 regional-scale pilot projects on Canada’s three marine coasts and in the Great Lakes – St. Lawrence region. Selected pilot projects will represent diverse economic, social, and environmental conditions and different types of adaptation actions across Canada. Further, the CRCC results will have national benefit by providing evidence and learning to inform adaptation approaches and actions in other regions across the country. To learn more click here.
