Réflexion sur Adaptation Canada en cette période de confinement

Le message qui est revenu le plus souvent à Adaptation Canada 2020 – que ce soit de la part des intervenants, des praticiens ou des chercheurs – c’est que « nous devrions faire cela plus souvent ». Bien évidemment, la formulation changeait d’une personne et d’une conversation à l’autre, mais le besoin de rassembler une expertise en adaptation à l’échelle nationale trottait dans l’esprit de plusieurs. 

 Le Conseil du bassin du Fraser a accompli un travail remarquable en inscrivant le plus de personnes possible avant l’événement. Mais malgré cela, la conférence a atteint rapidement sa pleine capacité. Cette dernière aurait pu être encore plus populaire si, en plus d’aborder les thèmes clés axés sur les mesures d’adaptation, elle avait aussi comporté des volets scientifiques, des évaluations des risques ou des études de cas.

Reflecting on Adaptation Canada 2020 While in Lockdown

More than any other message I heard at Adaptation Canada 2020 – from stakeholders, practitioners and researchers – was “we should do this more often.”  The words differed from person to person and from conversation to conversation, but the need to bring together adaptation expertise at a national scale was on many minds. 

 The Fraser Basin Council did a remarkable job of registering as many people as possible leading up to the event, but even then, the conference hit its cap quickly. The demand might have been greater still if the conference had, in addition to key themes centred on adaptation actions, included streams on science, risk assessments or case studies.
