Monday, November 5, 2018

Flooded streetA new report from the University of Waterloo stresses the importance of community-based projects to reduce increasing flood risk in Canada. 

The report examines 11 projects in Vancouver, Calgary, Mississauga, Montreal and Halifax to assess how the restoration and preservation of natural infrastructures — such as ponds, large-scale natural gardens, and restored shorelines — can aid communities in protecting themselves from the impacts of flooding. 

The report titled ‘Too Small to Fail: Protecting Canadian Communities from Floods’ is available online.

Head of the Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation, Professor Feltmate will be speaking alongside representatives from Microsoft and Systems Applications and Products (SAP) at the Waterloo Innovation Summit in Vancouver on November 13 as he shares his perspectives on climate change with business leaders and policymakers.
