CASE STUDY | Building a Neighbourhood-Based Urban Climate Adaptation Infrastructure

Case Studies, Emergency Preparedness, Cities Deepening Community

Canadian communities across the country are facing the devastating consequences of increasingly severe weather such as extreme heat, drought, fire, floods, hurricanes and storms. Having supplies for the first 72 hours is important, however, the best way to prepare for these inevitable events is by getting to know your neighbours. Learn how the Lighthouse Project strengthened social connectivity within their neighbourhoods through three models of building climate resilience led by:  the municipality, community organizations, and residents.
