Prairie Climate Centre

The Prairie Climate Centre is a collaboration of the University of Winnipeg and the International Institute for Sustainable Development established to advance practical climate change solutions for the Canadian Prairies. The centre’s mandate is to translate climate science into knowledge products, frameworks and decision-making tools that will help local governments, the private sector, civil society organizations and other practitioners implement adaptation measures.

The Prairie Climate Centre enables governments, businesses and community members across the Prairies to reduce their vulnerability to climate variability and change by providing access to an innovative, stakeholder-driven hub for data, guidance, research, knowledge exchange, training and capacity building.
