The  PIEVC Protocol Session: Informing Collaborative Planning and Engineering Decision Making

The PIEVC Workshop on February 25, 2016 was structured to encourage and enable engineers and planners to work together to collaboratively apply and explore the various steps of the PIEVC Protocol through the use of real life case studies in BC.

Engineers Canada logoThe PIEVC Protocol, a tool built by Engineers Canada, has been very successful in allowing rigorous climate vulnerability risk assessments to be carried out to a wide variety of built infrastructure.

Upon completion of this workshop, participants should have gained an increased understanding of historical climate trends and methods for climate projection as these pertain to infrastructure, have a basic understanding of risk assessment as applied to infrastructure response to changing climate, have hands-on experience with the application of climate change risk assessment for select infrastructure examples, in addition to recognizing the benefits of a multi-disciplinary and multi-stakeholder team to address the impacts and complexities of climate change on infrastructure.
