IAIA17: Impact Assessment’s Contribution to the Global Efforts in Addressing Climate Change
Le Centre Sheraton Montréal Hôtel
Montréal, Canada
4-7 April 2017

Climate change represents a key challenge to the sustainability of global ecosystems and human prosperity in the 21st century.  Climate change goes beyond project impacts, as it affects many diverse global issues:  from water, food, and energy security to impacts on human rights and vulnerable peoples. Global climate change raises important questions of international and intergenerational justice.

IA science and practice are strongly challenged by climate change. IA will contribute to ensuring that future development outcomes are not jeopardized by present-day decisions, and to identifying resilient adaptation measures to reduce and manage the adverse effects of climate change.

Using our skills to adapt or mitigate the adverse effects of climate change is one of the greatest challenges we face as professionals and citizens. You are invited to join IAIA in Montréal to share information, best practices, success stories, innovations, and lessons learned with delegates from all over the world.
