On May 6, 2015, Zhong Li and Jocelyn Crivea attended the 7th Regional Centre of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development Recognition Event. They accepted an award on behalf of IEESC for the Canadian High-Resolution Climate Change Projections for Impact Assessment project.
The recognition program celebrates innovative projects, research, and activities that promote education for sustainable development in Saskatchewan. IEESC’s scientific support for climate trends and variability analyses, advanced projections of regional climate systems and local weather extremes, and state-of-the-art tools are useful to evaluate the impacts of climate change on health, energy, infrastructure, agriculture, fisheries, ecosystems and communities.
IEESC’s high-resolution climate projections for the Province of Ontario have been developed and made available to the public at a web-based data portal. Visit http://ontarioccdp.ca for more information. Since 2014, the site has received more than 16,000 downloads from approximately 140 non-registered users across Canada from education, government agencies, NGOs, business and industry.
Since 2007, RCE-SK has been a hub for formal, informal and non-formal research, education and training to sustainability in the areas of climate change, culture, community planning, food, health, ecosystems and infrastructure.
