NEW 4th Edition Planning and Development Forum
November 25-26, 2013
The Old Mill Inn, Toronto ON
Today’s cities and regions are facing many challenges as they strive to ensure sustainable, affordable and dependable services and infrastructure for Canadians. Complicating an already challenging situation is the rise in extreme weather events such as flooding, tornados and heavy storm activities. Longer term strategies are needed that take the radical changes in weather and extreme climate events into consideration. Risk assessment, prevention, mitigation, resilience and adaptation are now recognized as necessary strategies that require implementation.
This conference will address the challenges that urban, regional and other planners and policy makers face in doing so – it will also provide practical concrete reports on initiatives and progress now being made to provide workable solutions.
