Manitoba’s Climate Action Team (CAT) is a coalition of environmental organizations in Manitoba working to create 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 that we have just 12 years (now 9) to drastically cut greenhouse gas emissions.
With funding from the Winnipeg foundation, CAT has hosted educational events around Winnipeg and produced the Road to Resilience, a comprehensive roadmap to meeting the emissions targets laid out in the IPCC 1.5 Report in Manitoba.
Coalition members include Climate Change Connection, Wilderness Committee – Manitoba Office, Green Action Centre, Manitoba Energy Justice Coalition and Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives – Manitoba Office.
