Together with diverse stakeholders from across Canada, Partners for Action is leading an applied research project on managed retreat from high-risk flood areas through property buyouts that move people out of harm’s way.
P4A is working with the Canadian Red Cross and other partners to develop, refine and test a social vulnerability index. This tool will help policymakers and flood management practitioners develop highly targeted outreach strategies that boost awareness and encourage preparedness among Canada’s vulnerable populations.
An ongoing project, FloodSmartCanada.ca is a national website designed to educate community members, organizations, businesses and municipalities about floods. The website provides a hub of information related to flood risk communications, flood preparedness, and flood resiliency.
