Stephanie Arnold

Ms. Arnold has worked at the UPEI Climate Research Lab since 2014. She managed two large multi-partner research projects that focused on climate change adaptation in Atlantic Canada.  She co-edited a book titled Global Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainability: Challenges and Opportunities and developed the "Prince Edward Island Climate Change Adaptation Recommendations Report" for the Government of Prince Edward Island.  The report outlines anticipated climate change impacts for 10 different sectors – Agriculture, Education and Outreach, Energy, Fish and Aquaculture, Forestry and Biodiversity, Insurance, Properties and Infrastructure, Public Health and Safety, Tourism, and Water – and recommends a total of 97 adaptation actions to address them.  This work was implemented in the Province’s Climate Change Action Plan 2018 – 2023. A graduate of Business Administration (MBA) and Chemical Engineering (BSc) from the University of Toronto, she continues to pursue graduate studies at UPEI, focusing her research on developing a dynamic approach to climate change adaptation that is responsive to changing biophysical and climatic conditions.
