Event Details

From massive wildfires to powerful hurricanes and heavy rainfalls, 2017 was a year of extreme weather and natural disasters around the globe. Billions of dollars and thousands of lives were lost. And with climate change continuing, the incidence and severity of these kinds of natural disasters are set to increase in the years ahead.

Are Canadians ready to face these challenges, as individuals and as a nation? What lessons can we learn from other countries, and what can we be doing to help the international response?

thePanel will explore the natural disaster risks we face based on new climate and weather trends, how we should be preparing, and what role Canada should play abroad.
