Thanks to Richard Ashley for this report.
The Canadian Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation, our new report titled “Weathering the Storm: Developing a Canadian Standard for Flood-Resilient Existing Communities.”
The report highlights a range of solutions that can be deployed practically and cost-effectively within communities and households, across Canada, to reduce flood risk. It also features a Flood Hazard and Vulnerability Screening Framework for selecting areas within communities that should be targeted for flood-resiliency retrofits.
The development of this report was supported financially by the National Research Council Canada, Standards Council of Canada and Intact Financial Corporation, with the objective to establish a National Standard on flood resiliency for Canadian communities.
