A recent study led by the Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change (IC3) and Partners for Action (P4A) at the University of Waterloo demonstrates that, although the risk of floods may be on the rise, risk awareness from homeowners is lacking.
The Centre for Community Knowledge provides members of the Kitchener-Waterloo community with access to information and projects of numerous organizations across the region. Their platform allows users to easily learn and connect with local non-profit organizations.
A recent survey of Canadian homeowners led by the Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change (IC3) and Partners for Action (P4A) at the University of Waterloo demonstrates that, in general, Canadians are not aware of their flood risks and are unprepared for flooding events. The survey results shine light on this lack of risk awareness and stress the importance of developing better flood management policy in Canada.
Partners for Action is taking action to better educate and prepare Canadians for floods with the recent launch of our new website: FloodSmartCanada. FloodSmartCanada was launched in the fall of 2016 with its primary goal of helping Canadians prepare for floods and the associated risks.
