Event description
This course will describe how to conduct a climate change risk assessment using the PIEVC Process on infrastructure systems

About this event

Understanding climate risks to infrastructure is key in adapting to a changing climate. Infrastructure designers, managers, operators and decision makers must assess climate risks and identify actions and priorities to ensure our infrastructure is resilient.

Focusing on the PIEVC risk assessment process, this course will outline the main steps on conducting a climate change risk/resilience assessment on infrastructure systems. Climate risk assessments are becoming a common step in planning, designing and operating infrastructure systems and a requirement of some in government infrastructure funding requirements.

The course will use Manitoba-themed example projects and case studies of different infrastructure areas to assist in the training. This will be delivered as a live, instructional style, Zoom presentation. Information is emphasized through example projects and case studies.

These are the key learnings of the course:

  • Assessing risk on infrastructure
  • Use of Climate projections in assessments and design
  • Assessing and prioritizing risk
  • Adaptation planning
  • Guidance on Climate Lens Resilience Assessments

We recommend familiarity with basic climate change science and impacts and risk assessment principles. The following BRACE/ MCRT courses are recommended prerequisites but not required: Climate Change 101, Manitoba's Changing Climate, Climate Change Risk Assessment: Core Principles. **Recordings of recommended prerequisites, such as Climate Change 101 and others that have already taken place, will be made available here for your viewing prior to attending this course.
