Urban flooding in Ontario – toward collective impact solutions

May 18, 2017, Thursday,1-2pm (EDT)

Join us for a free, 1 hour webinar. We will present the overview of the findings from our 2017 Urban flooding in Ontario: Toward Collective Impact Solutions report. Our research includes the causes of urban flooding, focusing on land use changes and urbanization interrupting the water cycle. Aging stormwater infrastructure and climate change are also explored as other contributing causes. We explain the economic, social, health and environmental impacts of urban flooding events. We conclude by describing current and past initiatives to address urban flooding in Ontario by many stakeholders from various sectors. This is a great opportunity to ask questions and discuss our report directly with the authors, learn more about the next phase of this project and ways to get involved.

About the presenter:

Anastasia Kaschenko is the Lead Researcher for the Urban Flooding in Ontario: Toward Collective Impact Solutions report released in final draft by Green Communities Canada in April this year.
