CEF has been a key member of the ClimAdapt network since it was established in Halifax in 2002. ClimAdapt develops expertise in adaptation to climate change, with a focus on environmental impact assessment and land-use planning. CEFs' involvement in climate change and energy issues began in earnest with the 1990 Energy Roundtable, a broad-based workshop that established Nova Scotia's energy policy. In 1994, CEF developed policy tools for the Nova Scotia government to combat global warming. In 1996, we headed a team that reviewed implementation of the National Energy Codes, and developed measures to minimize the impacts of enforcement on building officials. CEF led the ClimAdapt group that developed a guide to incorporate climate change into the impact assessment process, and also led a case study application of the guide supported by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency.
Mr. Collins, President of CEF, presented a poster on the Guide and case study application at the International Association of Impact Assessment in Marrakech in 2003, and presented a paper at the 2004 IAIA conference in Vancouver. He has also made numerous presentations on climate change, impact assessment and land-use planning in Atlantic Canada and at the World Bank in Washington DC.
