As part of the OFNTSC’s ongoing efforts to assess infrastructure vulnerability and the mitigation of climate change risks, we are announcing an additional training session on the First Nations PIEVC Infrastructure Resilience Toolkit. This Toolkit uses industry recognized climate risk assessment principles to assess and fully document the vulnerability and impacts of First Nations infrastructure to current and future climate in a life-cycle asset management context.
OFNTSC will be holding a two and a half day workshop in Chippewas of Rama First Nation (Casino Rama – Wendat Room) that will provide First Nations with a better understanding of infrastructure challenges in the face of extreme weather and future climate events. Workshops will demonstrate the steps of the Toolkit through hands-on, small group exercises; how to define infrastructure inventory; identify climate issues; and, undertake a risk assessment & mitigation measures using real case studies.
These workshops are open to First Nations’ infrastructure planners, managers and decision-makers wishing to gain a better understanding how current and future climate change risks impacts First Nations infrastructure.
