Jan 30, 2020- Saint John NB: NRCan Flood Mapping Workshop
In consultation with provincial and territorial partners and key stakeholders, the federal government has developed new documents in the Federal Flood Mapping Guidelines Series. These are a series of evergreen guidelines that will help advance flood mapping activities across Canada. The purpose of this workshop is to provide an introduction and overview of the Federal Flood Mapping Guidelines Series documents and recent related activities. This workshop will focus on developments in flood mapping activities and research in Atlantic Canada, including considerations of climate change and stakeholder engagement.
The intent of the workshop is to support engagement and facilitate knowledge sharing between researchers, practitioners, and policy decision-makers in the region for flood delineation and mapping.
Breakfast, lunch, and coffee will be served. This event is hosted free of charge.
