About the Canadian Centre for Climate Change and Adaptation
As a destination for world-class research and learning, the Canadian Centre for Climate Change and Adaptation (CCCCA) at the University of Prince Edward Island will provide expertise and collaboration within a "living laboratory" setting. The Centre is a new initiative funded jointly by the Government of Canada, the Government of Prince Edward Island, 和UPEI.
Completed in May 2022, 中心的45个,000 square-foot research facility can be found in beautiful St. 彼得斯湾，PEI. The building houses state-of-the-art research centres, including the internationally-recognized UPEI Climate 研究 Lab, as well as the UPEI School of Climate Change and Adaptation. The facility and the lands surrounding it will also serve as a living laboratory that allows for unlimited access to nearby wetlands, forests and coastal habitats directly affected by climate change.
The site will provide access to high-quality datasets, multidisciplinary research teams, outstanding graduate and postdoctoral fellows, and engaged industry, 社区, and government partners.
在一起, these elements create a highly interactive environment in which new knowledge and research and development for climate change innovation and adaptive solutions are nurtured.
