Many Ways to See Water: Fresh Water and a Changing Climate
Date & Time:Thursday, March 8, 2012 - 08:30 - 12:30
As part of UVic's Ideafest, the POLIS Project on Ecological Governance at the Centre for Global Studies hosted the successful roundtable Many Ways to See Water: Fresh Water and a Changing Climate on March 8, 2012. Bringing together expert speakers from research centres and departments across the campus, the event highlighted UVic research on freshwater resources in a changing climate, and associated issues of governance. With approximately 40 people in attendance—including students, researchers, community members, and government representatives—the discussion was robust. Questions focused on the science-policy interface and water availability in Canada as a result of a changing climate. The event showcased research from the Centre for Aboriginal Health Research, Centre for Global Studies, Department of Geography, Faculty of Law, Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium, Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions, and Water and Climate Impacts Research Centre.
