The next webinar in the Fraser Basin Council’s ReTooling for Climate Change Series:
Managing Flood Risk in BC’s Lower Mainland
Tuesday, September 27th
11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Steve Litke from the Fraser Basin Council will be presenting the results of Phase 1 of the Lower Mainland Flood Management Strategy. Phase 1 examined the region’s flood hazards, flood vulnerabilities, as well as flood protection infrastructure, policies and practices. Litke will also speak about what to expect from Phase 2 of the Strategy, which aims to develop a regional action plan.
One of the Strategy’s partners is the City of Surrey, and in the second portion of this webinar, Carrie Baron will speak about how the City went from technical studies on climate change to policy, financial planning, design and construction integration, to community engagement. Of considerable note is the Coastal Flood Adaptation Strategy project currently underway at the City. This project builds off smaller technical and local engagement projects with the projected outcome being a comprehensive coastal strategy for the City.
