|Application Deadline:Thursday, June 1, 2017||
Postdoctoral Fellow in Coastal Community Resilience
Coastal communities face many hazards, from oil spills to coastal flooding and the longer-term threats of climate change. New information tools are needed to help communities make informed, effective decisions to address these risks. The Resilient Coasts Canada (Resilient-C) online platform was developed to help communities share knowledge and resources to support coastal hazard risk reduction (https://resilient-c.ubc.ca). Launched in 2016, the platform uses an indicator approach to help a community identify others that share its hazard vulnerability characteristics, and to learn about their risk reduction activities. Resilient-C currently focuses on Salish Sea coastal communities in British Columbia.
