Manitoba Climate Resilience Training
BRACE is increasing the ability of communities, organizations, small and medium-sized enterprises and practitioners to access, use, and apply knowledge and tools on climate change adaptation in their daily work.
The Manitoba Climate Resilience Training (MCRT) Project of the Government of Manitoba is funded through the Building Regional Adaptation Capacity and Expertise (BRACE) program of Natural Resources Canada, an initiative of the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change.
The BRACE program’s main goal is to address one of the critical barriers, currently limiting action to reduce climate change impacts in Canada, which is knowledge and tools and the appropriate capacity to apply them effectively.
BRACE works in partnership with Canada’s provinces and responds to unique, regional climate change adaptation needs and priorities across the country. Projects are delivered by various organizations that are best suited to ensure appropriate target audiences are reached by using a broad range of approaches for building skills and expertise on climate change adaptation.
The Sendai Framework Voluntary Commitments (SFVC) online platform allows stakeholders to inform the public about their work on DRR. The SFVC online platform is a useful toolto know who is doing what and where for the implementation of the Sendai Framework, which could foster potential collaboration among stakeholders. All stakeholders (private sector, civil society organizations, academia, media, local governments, etc.) working on DRR can submit their commitments and report on their progress and deliverables.
