In Canada and globally, we are facing unprecedented water-related challenges. Canada has some of the world's highest rates of warming, which impacts infrastructure, institutions, ecosystems and human health. Given that half the world's population and all of Canada are dependent upon water from cold regions, the grand challenge for water science in Canada and globally is: "How can we best forecast, prepare for and manage water futures in the face of dramatically increasing risks?"

Join us for a webinar with guest speaker Dr. John Pomeroy. Dr. Pomeroy will discuss how the multi-national research project, Global Water Futures (GWF), is working with hundreds of researchers to deliver risk management solutions—informed by leading-edge water science—to manage water futures in Canada and other cold regions where global warming is changing landscapes, ecosystems, and the water environment. In the webinar, Dr. Pomeroy will share highlights of the research to date, and opportunities for the freshwater community to collaborate with GWF researchers.
