Using Better Data to Identify Climate Change Related Infrastructure Vulnerabilities in Your Community: A Canadian Case Study Panel




Recorded session dates :

  • November 15th, 2019 2pm - 3:30pm ET - FULL
  • November 26th, 2019 1pm - 2:30pm ET


Municipal assets and public services are vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, placing local leaders at the frontlines of adaptation. But a lack of quality data and capacity to utilize that data prevents many local governments from accurately identifying their unique climate change infrastructure vulnerabilities.

On October 30th, PSD, Canadian Water Network (CWN), Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) and the Canadian Water and Wastewater Association (CWWA) will publish a new case study series designed to support local governments with climate change adaptation. Each case study highlights the types of data that are necessary to assess vulnerabilities to critical risks posed by climate change, and how these datasets are collected and analyzed by municipalities and utilities to inform decision-making on risk reduction and adaptation for municipal water systems.

Featured Case Studies

  • City of Kenora, Ontario: Asset Risk Assessment
  • City of Edmonton, Alberta: Flood Mitigation & Mapping
  • City of Moncton, New Brunswick: Flood Mitigation & Neighbourhood Vulnerability Assessment
  • City of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan: Grey & Green Infrastructure Adaptation
  • Union Water Supply System: Drinking Water System Vulnerability Assessment


Tune in on November 13th for our Canadian Case Study Panel Discussion. Hear from several of the case study participants, along with project partners PSD and CWN, about the insights generated from the project and how municipalities and utilities across Canada can use these case studies as a road map for municipal adoption. Share your organization’s approach to identifying climate change vulnerabilities with webinar attendees and ask direct questions of our expert panel.
