Community and Ecosystem Resilience in North America CEC Workshop

Jul 10, 2012 7:09 PM
Craig Applegath

The Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) held a very successful workshop over the past couple of days. It's goal was to provide citizens from Canada, Mexico and the USA, NGOs, government and academics to come together to discuss how individual communities across North America are tackling environmental challenges and how policymakers are working to support their efforts.

I will shortly post some of the key findings and photos from the workshop facilitated by The Moment. The final output of the session will be a "book" of resilience guidelines, strategies and approaches. You should also be able to find them posted on  http://www.facebook.com/CECconnect sometime later this week.

What stood out most in my mind about this workshop was the thoughtfulness of the participants, and the very high quality of the presentations, and most importantly, the high quality of resilience strategies and approaches developed by the "expert" work groups over the two days.
