Forests and floods: can natural infrastructure protect us?

by Community Forests International on September 9, 2019

Community Forests International will welcome Natalia Moudrak, Director of Resilience at the Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation, to Sackville on Wednesday, October 16th. The event will take place from 7:00pm - 9:00pm at Mount Allison University in Crabtree Building, Room M14.

Natalia is one of the country’s leading voices on using natural infrastructure, like healthy forests, wetlands, and other natural features, to adapt to climate change. With a B.A. in Economics and a Masters in Urban Planning from the University Waterloo, Natalia works to help communities understand the economic value of natural infrastructure assets for climate resilience, disaster risk reduction and other benefits.

Natalia will be joined by Daimen Hardie, Executive Director of Community Forests International. The organization is currently working to understand the role of forests in mitigating flooding in the Saint John River Valley.

This event was made possible by the support of the New Brunswick Environmental Network and the Department of Geography & Environment at Mount Allison.
