Natural Infrastructure Adaptation Program

The Natural Infrastructure Adaptation Program (NIAP)

The Natural Infrastructure Adaptation Program (NIAP) helps communities across Canada to reduce the risk of flooding through three areas of focus:
– Advancing the design and implementation of characteristics for building communities that are more resilient to flooding
– Evaluating the potential of natural infrastructure (e.g., wetlands) to reduce the impacts of flooding and to create healthier and more livable communities
– Researching the impacts of changing climate and extreme weather on financial institutions and investigating the business case for climate adaptation in the financial services sector
