The S. J. Hall Lecture in Industrial Forestry

Forest Sector and Climate Change in British Columbia: From Impacts to Innovation

Speaker:
Susanna Laaksonen-Craig, PhD '98
Head, Climate Action Secretariat
Ministry of Environment

Friday, October 2, 2015

British Columbia has emerged as a global leader in the fight against climate change to preserve the province's ecosystems, including its forests. The impact of this change in climate most visibly includes the Mountain Pine Beetle Epidemic, which has killed an estimated 730 million cubic meters of pine since its beginning in 1999. Dr. Susanna Laaksonen-Craig discusses British Columbia's innovative and ambitious response in forest products, processes, and policies to mitigate these impacts and enhance forest ecosystem resilience.
