Mobilizing Climate Research to Enhance Resilience

ClimateWest / ClimatOuest – From Abstract to Applied: Mobilizing Climate Research to Enhance Climate Resilience in Edmonton

ClimateWest, the new regional hub for climate services to support climate adaptation across the Prairie region, is working to advance climate change adaptation in Edmonton by increasing the uptake of recently developed climate projections in the work of frontline practitioners, like planners and engineers.

This project will help reduce gaps by synthesizing current research to identify the most effective techniques for communicating, translating and mobilizing technical research for practitioner audiences; apply evidence-based techniques to inform the mobilization of recent results from climate modelling studies focused on the City of Edmonton and the North Saskatchewan River Basin; and assess the effectiveness of these mobilization techniques among the practitioners engaged in the project.
