Understanding Natural Infrastructure Solutions

by Adaptation Policy Committee of CCME

The Adaptation Policy Committee of the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment is hosting a webinar, as part of its series to explore how natural infrastructure and other natural climate solutions can help improve resilience to climate change.

Reimagining how we manage water, reduce flooding, and improve resilience to climate change:

The Cities of Markham, Ontario and Vancouver British Columbia will discuss the unique ways that they are improving water management, providing two distinct examples of how natural infrastructure is being used to improve resilience to climate change, improve water quality, and reduce flooding. The City of Markham will provide insight on the process it undertook to initiate a natural infrastructure solution for flood control. Following this presentation, the City of Vancouver will talk about its new Rain City Strategy - an initiative to reimagine how it manages rainwater in the city through nature based-solutions and a holistic and integrated approach to planning for land use, urban design, municipal infrastructure and water utilities.

Who should attend?

Municipal planners, engineers and other related practitioners and professionals interested in learning about different types of natural infrastructure and how they can be beneficial.

Registration deadline is Friday, February 7, 2020.
