Outline

In an ideal, world humanity would take such actions as are required to limit climate change to levels compatible with sustaining the global ecosystem. It is becoming increasingly clear that the choice of a path that keeps global warming below 2 degrees is unlikely, and that humans and other creatures will, therefore, need to live with the results.

Dr. Manning will discuss adaptation strategies prepared for various UN agencies and national governments primarily focused on small islands, coastal zones and World Heritage sites, and developing risk management methods for the UN World Tourism Organization. He will also cover work by international organizations to define scenarios and practical tools towards creating more robust responses in support of survival. Ted will then review some global approaches, such as those underway with Small Island Developing States and with tourism in coastal zones and fragile ecosystems.

The presentation will end with a brief discussion of what it may mean for individual Canadians and their communities. Even if we get it right, the transition is unlikely to be smooth and it does not hurt to be prepared.
