Progress Report on WFEO Action Pledge - “Adaptation of Sustainable Civil Infrastructure to Climate Change Impacts”

 

Since 2005, Engineers Canada has been leading a project in Canada to complete a national engineering vulnerability assessment of existing and planned public infrastructure to the impacts of a changing climate. A formalized risk assessment tool, now referred to as the Engineers Canada

Infrastructure Climate Risk Protocol (“the Protocol”), was developed and successfully tested in ten case studies, three of which were completed in the reporting period and are summarized in this report.
