Case Study: Investing in Nature to Build Climate-Resilient Communities
Tuesday 14 July 2020 - 02:00pm - Tuesday 14 July 2020 03:00pm
Since 2014, WWF-Canada has worked with municipalities in New Brunswick to help local leaders learn the climate risks and vulnerabilities of their infrastructure, businesses, and community members.

Recently, we teamed up with the MNAI and the town of Florenceville-Bristol to understand how natural assets can help reduce or prevent flooding – at a lower cost and increased resilience than engineered infrastructure. The analysis revealed that protecting 182 hectares of forested area provides services equivalent to a $3.5 million stormwater management pond system.

Join us to learn about a real, on-the-ground example of a municipality taking action on flooding and climate change through nature-based climate solutions.

Featured speakers:
  • Simon J. Mitchell, VP Resilient Habitats, WWF-Canada
  • Sarah Pacey, Chief Administrative Officer, Town of Florenceville-Bristol, New Brunswick
  • Michelle Molnar, Technical Director, Municipal Natural Assets Initiative (MNAI)
  • Amy Graham, National Property Underwriting Manager, Personal Insurance, RSA Canada
This panel event is a content-driven forum for:
  • Canadian municipalities
  • Local community and watershed groups across the country
  • Provincial and federal agencies
  • Insurance and risk management professionals
  • Engineering and infrastructure sector leaders
  • Community partners and funders
WWF-Canada would like to thank RSA Canada for supporting our work with community partners along the Saint John River to build climate-resilient communities.
