Speaker: Joel Trubilowicz, National Hydrologic Service

The Flood Hazard Identification and Mapping Program (FHIMP) is a joint program between Environment and Climate Change Canada, Natural Resources Canada, and Public Safety Canada with the goal of producing regulatory quality flood hazard maps across the country. As a part of this program, ECCC is working to advance the state of science and engineering of flood hazard mapping. A major goal of this initiative is to provide guidance to practitioners on incorporation of climate change impacts into flood hazard studies. In this webinar, Joel will discuss the development of ECCC’s guidance to engineers on climate impacts assessments for flooding, including examples of how it can be applied in across Canada. ECCC’s engineering guidance emphasizes the combination of qualitative and quantitative understanding of potential flood impacts with the aim of helping engineers provide recommendations in a world where the future is uncertain.
