About this Event
Infrastructure is traditionally designed with the assumption that the climate is stationary. Given the broad scientific consensus that global climate change is now occurring on a time scale shorter than the life of most infrastructure, it is clear that our design criteria must be adapted to take climate change into account. This presentation will provide a picture of future climate projections across Canada and the expected impacts of climate change on our infrastructure.
