During the week of 19-23 February, FloodNet and UNU-INWEH held a workshop entitled: “Bridging Flood Science in Canada with Policy and Practice”, hosted by McMaster Health Forum. The 2.5-day workshop welcomed researchers, students, and partners to learn about how best to communicate research results in a way that is of use to policy makers. A team of 20 participants worked through the knowledge transition process to develop a research summary and provide a brief presentation to policy makers.
