Bringing together regional and international experts, this workshop will challenge current thinking by exploring how impact assessment practitioners might support urban/regional planners in addressing long-term cumulative climate and global impacts in their City Development Strategies and long-range planning. This will include looking at the current state of urban development and its resilience to climate change, followed by a series of short presentations and a panel discussion on impact assessment’s role in planning for 2050 and beyond.

After lunch, participants will break out into small groups (a World Café format) to discuss pertinent questions facing city planners and impact assessment professionals.

This workshop is targeted to city planners, climate change experts, social impact assessment specialists, and environmental assessment practitioners.

The registration fee includes lunch and two coffee breaks.
