The Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation today released a new report titled, “Weathering the Storm: Developing a Canadian Standard for Flood-Resilient Existing Communities”.
"The report highlights a range of solutions that can be deployed practically and cost-effectively within communities and households, across Canada, to reduce flood risk. It also features a Flood Hazard and Vulnerability Screening Framework for selecting areas within communities that should be targeted for flood-resiliency retrofits." - Natalia Moudrak, Director, Infrastructure Adaptation Program
John van der Eerden, Vice President of Water Resources, was one of the subject matter experts who helped contribute during a year-long consultation with municipal experts, engineering consultants, conservation authorities and industry representatives from across Canada to produce the report.
