Extreme weather events are becoming much more common across New Brunswick. Over the past few years, many rural communities, especially on coastal areas and near inland waterways, have experienced flooding and storm surges. Many rural activists and local public sector organizations are working on adapting to these and related changes in their communities and regions. Some are also actively mitigating climate change by taking steps to reduce their carbon footprint.
RAVEN is currently working on one project under this theme:
RAVEN is collaborating with the Northwest Regional Service Commission (CSRNO) on a project related to leadership for climate change adaptation in a rural region. RAVEN research assistant Kim Reeder is working on this project with investigator Susan O’Donnell. We plan to have an initial report of this work ready for presentation during RAVEN’s Earth Week activities at the end of April.
