This week on rabble radio, Nick Seebruch sits down with Dr. Anabela Bonada, manager and research associate at the Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation at the University of Waterloo. The two talk about COP28, climate anxiety and community action.

Dr. Bonada brings extensive experience and education to the field of climate science.  At the Intact Centre, Dr. Bonada leads and supports research projects including a national wildfire guide, infographic development and formulating recommendations for scaling up nature-based solutions to lower risk of wildfire, extreme heat and flooding, at the home, community, and landscape levels.

She holds a Ph.D. in Geography from the University of Guelph, where her research focused on the effect that climate change has on tree growth, which gave her insights on the repercussions of extreme events, such as drought, on forest ecosystems. Dr. Bonada earned her B.Sc. in environmental science from the University of Waterloo and holds a diploma in ecosystem management from Fleming College. At the University of Waterloo, she serves as the staff representative on the president’s advisory committee on environmental sustainability. Additionally, Dr. Bonada is the vice chair on the board of directors of the Canadian Association of Professionals in Climate Change.
