Session Time: July 30, 2019 at 10 AM PT

How can municipal infrastructure be managed in a way that takes into considerations climate change?

Since 1948, Canada has witnessed a temperature increase of 1.7°C, while Northern Canada has experienced an increase of 2.3°C. This rate of temperature increase is double the global average.  As the temperature changes, precipitations levels become more volatile and extreme, and we witness more extreme weather events during which we turn to local leaders to protect our communities. Our communities are at risk, namely our physical assets. Asset management is an industry best practice and the risks associated with the changing climate should be integrated into municipal asset management programs.

This complimentary webinar will describe how climate change considerations can be introduced into municipal asset management practices.

What will you learn?

  • Climate change events that put your physical assets at risk
  • Ways that climate change can be integrated in your community’s asset management program
  • Grant opportunities related to asset management and resiliency for municipalities and regional districts in BC
