Climate change poses significant risks to water security in urban settings. Addressing this complex challenge requires collaboration and the incorporation of knowledge and expertise from various disciplines.
The University of Waterloo’s Water Institute (WI) and Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change (IC3) are advancing climate change efforts by delivering a uniquely designed, three-week virtual summer school. Ninety-four participants from more than 15 countries participated in this year’s program, which ran from May 31st to June 18th, 2021. The summer school covered a wide range of program topics, including climate modelling and projections, climate change risk management, the role of green and grey infrastructure in water supply, water and food security in Indigenous communities, and many more.
