Manitoba’s Road to Resilience
Manitoba can meet the goals set out in the IPCC’s 1.5 report. We have a community climate plan to do it.
Manitoba’s Road to Resilience is a series of reports that outline an achievable and concrete pathway to a climate resilient future, while considering human and economic impacts. The series lays out what is needed in order for us to feed, shelter, and transport Manitobans without the use of fossil fuels.
Reports in the series include:
– Volume 1: Community Pathway
– Volume 2: Energy Solutions
– Volume 3: Policy Solutions
Who We Are
Manitoba’s Climate Action Team (CAT) is a coalition of environmental organizations in Manitoba working together to envision, investigate, and promote a road to climate resilience in our province. Member groups came together in late 2017 to independently review and consult with the public over the Province’s recently released Climate and Green Plan. CAT was formed one short year later when the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) 1.5 Report was released, stating how fast we need to drastically cut greenhouse gas emissions in order to prevent irreversible outcomes. This drove home the need for an intentional, collaborative, and grassroots effort to push toward the future that we want.
A Resilient Future
To achieve a true and adequate resilience, Manitoba needs to focus on feeding ourselves, moving ourselves, and sheltering ourselves without the use of fossil fuels.
The work of Manitoba’s Climate Action Team is made possible thanks to funding from Environment and Climate Change Canada and the Winnipeg Foundation
Our mission is to provide a framework for individuals, organizations, and communities to communicate and collaborate on a non-partisan, specific, and actionable path that will help Manitoba achieve resilience to climate impacts and move swiftly toward a fossil-fuel free future.
