Socioeconomic Social-Ecological Inventories: Building Resilience to Environmental Change within Biosphere Reserves

A climate change adaptation workshop held at Brock University on 7-8 March, 2011 - 28 pages, Electronic Submission (pdf format)   8.5” x 11”

This report was prepared under contract for the Adaptation and Impacts Research Section of Environment Canada (AIRS) by lead author Dr. Richard C. Mitchell. Based upon Environment Canada’s national program
focus on community climate change adaptation in different areas of Canada, one of the main goals of AIRS is to ensure Canadians are informed of impacts and are prepared to adapt to their effects – a simultaneous process occurring throughout many regions of the world. As part of this process, a five-year Memorandum of Understanding (2010-2014) has been formalized with Environment Canada, Mistra Swecia/Stockholm Environmental Institute, and the Brock Environmental Sustainability Research Unit (BESRU) to facilitate collaborative research in these areas.
