Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This report summarizes the discussions and results from a workshop at the 2018 Canadian Risks and Hazards Network symposium in Vancouver. The main goal of the session was to identify gaps and opportunities between science and practice, to help navigate a path forward for different levels of government to work together to assess and plan for natural hazards. The Gitga¿at First Nation, Tsleil-Waututh Nation, and the Ucluelet First Nation shared their stories and needs on community planning and risk assessment in response to the natural hazards each community is facing. Recommendations for future collaboration and projects, based on the main themes from the discussions in breakout groups, concern: community engagement, building Indigenous relationships, research development, reporting of technical information and modeling, implementation of adaptation plans, funding agencies, and building on previous successes.
