Alberta is undergoing a period of energy and economic transition prompted in part by responses to the impacts of climate change. Alberta’s fresh water resources and the hydrologic cycle are being significantly impacted by climate change and are likely to be impacted more dramatically in the near future. This presents challenges for innovation in water governance & management as we plot a course for the future of Alberta’s communities. The evening’s speakers will address the implications of these challenges for communities as we navigate transition in Alberta.
