Climate Adaptation Plan



Climate Change Advisory Committee

A changing climate is expected to change the pattern of weather that we are used to seeing – the kind of weather we get and when, including the types of storms and their frequency.  These changes are expected to impact our growing season, the infrastructure we rely on, our recreation opportunities and the services we need.   To respond to this, the RM of East St Paul is developing a climate adaptation plan to help our community identify what a changing climate will mean for our municipality and what actions we can take to address risks and take advantage of the opportunities.

A public Adaptation Advisory Committee has been formed to help guide East St. Paul’s Climate Change Adaptation Plan.  The Advisory Committee is a non-political body of local citizens who have volunteered to provide input and advice into the development of our Climate Change Adaptation Plan.  Advisory Committee members provide suggestions on approaches and actions, share local knowledge, give advice on communications and help engage the broader community.  They also act as ambassadors, helping neighbours, friends, and colleagues find information on the climate adaptation project and encourage others to participate through the public engagement program.  The term of the Committee is September 2019 through January 2021 with 8 in-person meetings anticipated over this time frame.
