The Infrastructure Adaptation Program (IAP)
The Infrastructure Adaptation Program (IAP) helps communities across Canada to reduce their risk of flooding through three areas of focus:
Flood-Resilient Community Design
- Developing a national standard for building flood-resilient residential communities.
- The Standards Council of Canada and the Intact Centre joined forces to develop a new report on best practices for making new residential communities flood-resilient. To learn more, please see: http://www.intactcentreclimateadaptation.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/SCC-UWaterloo-ICCAFINAL-Press-Release.pdf
- Developing frameworks for assessing climate risks and promoting infrastructure that is more resilient to extreme weather.
Natural Infrastructure Valuation
- Quantifying the economic value of natural infrastructure to limit flood risk.
