MB. signs MOU with Australian state

December 15, 2009

Manitoba and an Australian state have signed a memorandum of understanding at the Copenhagen climate change conference.

Premier Greg Selinger, in the Danish capital along with Conservation Minister Bill Blaikie for the UN climate conference, signed the MOU this morning with Premier Mike Rann of South Australia.

The letter commits the two jurisdictions to sharing expertise on flood mitigation, long-term drought strategies and “community capacity building and ecological goods and services programming to provide resilience to future climate change challenges.”

Manitoba and South Australia signed a similar MOU in 2006 pledging to collaborate on biotechnology, renewable energy, sustainable development and Aboriginal economic opportunities.
