Spotlight: Partnership for Canada-Caribbean Climate Change Adaptation (ParCA)

Waterloo was the lead of the multi-national, five- year interdisciplinary ParCA project that integrated climate science and local knowledge to support climate change adaptation in coastal communities in Atlantic Canada and the Caribbean. Together, with university and community partners, ParCA mobilized collective knowledge to assess local climate change adaptation strategies and trained professionals to empower communities to main- stream adaptation into existing policy and planning.
