The ideal candidate will be well-organized, independent yet experienced in team work, will have experience in leading diverse groups through consensus-based processes, and will be able to work in a multi-faceted environment where the digital interface is an integral part of the work.

This will be done through the implementation of a community of practice, linking various initiatives, learnings, and pilot projects, and expanding and advancing action in the province that incorporates natural and nature-based infrastructure. At the end of the project, these stakeholders will be able to better incorporate, understand, value, design and apply natural and nature-based infrastructure principles, processes and projects into climate change adaptation work in New Brunswick. The project will be overseen by a multi-stakeholder advisory committee.
