Building resilience in an era of climate change is not going to be a top-down only exercise. It’s also going to be a bottom up process, built-up through an enhanced sense of place and community. This session will explore examples of successful engagement processes and what we can learn from them. Examples include: Surrey’s Crescent Beach sea level rise design process, City of Vancouver’s disaster hubs, the District of North Vancouver’s natural hazard task force and community-based risk tolerance criteria, the Stewardship Centre’s Greenshores program, and more. The session aims to identify key components of these successful engagement processes, practices contained there within, and sources of funding or methods of financing that were utilized.
Sendai theme: Priority 1: Understanding disaster risk, Priority 2: Strengthening disaster risk governance to manage disaster risk
