The Co-operators is a Canadian-owned co-operative with a vision to be a catalyst for a sustainable society. It offers insurance and investment products that provide financial security for Canadians and their communities.

Flooding is now the leading cause of loss affecting Canadian homeowners. The Co-operators seek to better mitigate the risks posed by climate change and extreme weather events, such as the floods that have affected Canadians across the country in recent years.

The Co-operators is excited to participate in the Liveable Cities Forum and help empower Canadians and municipalities across Canada to build resilient communities. We are committed to share insights learned through our own resilience initiatives, like our participation in Partners for Action, a multi-stakeholder network working to advance flood resiliency across Canada. We are eager to gain new ideas and discuss practical proactive solutions to the economic, social and environmental impacts of flooding on our communities.

Co-operative organizations pride themselves on being builders of sustainability and resilience. The Co-operators is proud to support ICLEI and the Liveable Cities Forum, where through learning, dialogue and co-operation, we will help develop solutions to build resilience in the face of climate change and extreme weather events.

International Development and Research Council (IDRC)

Part of Canada’s foreign affairs and development efforts, the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) invests in knowledge, innovation, and solutions to improve lives and livelihoods in the developing world. Bringing together the right partners around opportunities for impact, IDRC builds leaders for today and tomorrow and helps drive large-scale positive change.

To this end, IDRC supports innovative research on scalable solutions to help people, communities, and economies become more resilient in small and medium-sized cities.

On September 13, 2016, IDRC, in partnership with Local Governments for Sustainability and Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI) Canada, is hosting a workshop at the Livable Cities Forum.

This event will be an opportunity to connect with a vibrant global community of practitioners and researchers. At the workshop, IDRC-funded researchers and stakeholders—representing research institutions in Canada and the Global South—will share their experiences. Later on, participants will join in a moderated discussion, exploring strategies to leverage these experiences of urban and rural climate change adaptation and seeking ways to build and enhance collaborative research relationships between Canadian and Southern institutions.

The Centre was pioneering in its early support of research into climate change adaptation for developing countries, and remains a key funder. Since 2006 – the year in which the term “adaptation” first appeared on the COP agenda – IDRC has managed investments of over CAD$190 million, covering a range of programming in this area. Over the past decade, IDRC has supported the work of over 1000 researchers in 70 developing countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, strengthening research capacity at more than 165 institutions worldwide.

“IDRC is committed to working with our strong network of experts to address the very real need cities in developing regions have for strong evidence to inform decision-making — decision-making with consequences for millions of urban dwellers,” says President Jean Lebel.
