Engineers Canada PIEVC Protocol (featured at CWWA Conference)

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Engineers Canada has developed a Public Infrastructure Engineering Vulnerability Committee (PIEVC) to serve as a resource to provide the science base to inform decision-making. The PIEVC Protocol—which has been applied more than 40 times in Canada and globally—is a documented process for engineers, planners and decision-makers to identify and recommend measures to address the vulnerabilities and risks from climate change on infrastructure. The Protocol assessment helps infrastructure owners and managers justify design, operations and maintenance recommendations to assure their project’s life
cycle through improved resilience to extreme weather events and our changing climate.

CWWA is teaming with Engineers Canada to host a Workshop "Integrating Climate Risk into Infrastructure Management" which will provide participants with information about, and practice with, the tool and process that systematically assesses the risks of current and future climate on public infrastructure, with a focus on water infrastructure.

The Workshop will be held on November 13, in conjunction with the National Water and Wastewater conference.
