February 25, 2021 – Government of PEI: Fifteen groups will receive close to a million dollars through PEI’s Climate Challenge Fund to help Islanders adapt to climate change, develop new technologies and opportunities, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in innovative ways.
Projects funded in the first year of the program range from work to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture and planting trees to sequester carbon, to helping homeowners adapt to increased flood risk and the Island’s technology sector to develop zero emission transportation.
“We are committed to achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040 and to exploring both the challenges and opportunities that come with a changing climate,” says Environment, Energy and Climate Action Minister Steven Myers. “The Climate Challenge Fund supports creative, local solutions as well as ensuring our efforts support the diversity of our Island’s population.”
