The Climate Change in the Western and Northern Forests of Canada: Impacts and Adaptations workshop was held on February 17-19, 2003, in Prince George, British Columbia. The workshop provided a forum for the exchange of information on both the expected impacts of climate change on Canada's western and northern forests, and potential adaptive strategies. Presentations were given, and posters displayed, on climate change science and the implications of climate change on environmental, social, and economic values of the forest. Facilitated interactive sessions focused on knowledge gaps, policy, and institutional barriers to adaptation, followed by suggestions for moving the climate change impacts and adaptation agenda forward in the forest sector.
