The main goal of the Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) Project is to build and sustain infrastructure resilience through targeted climate adaptation training for professionals in Newfoundland and Labrador

Go to our Community of Practice page to join the discussion on Building Resilient Infrastructure

In March, 2018, Memorial University, in partnership with the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, received funding from Natural Resources Canada for this project. The purpose of the project is to build capacity among infrastructure practitioners to integrate climate change considerations into infrastructure decision-making processes and investments through (1) developing and delivering a suite of customized training modules; (2) creating a Community of Practice to promote best practices; and (3) enabling and enhancing integration of climate resilience into provincial and municipal policy processes. The target audience for this project is professional engineers, as well as planners, policy-makers and other municipal staff involved in public infrastructure planning and development.

NEWSLETTERS

The Building Climate Resilience Newsletter is sent out monthly to keep people up to date with climate change news, upcoming events, and opportunities in Newfoundland and Labrador. As part of the NRCan project the goal of the newsletters is to help professionals in Newfoundland and Labrador understand how to incorporate climate change into design and everyday work. The newsletter provides current training opportunities each month via webinars and workshops for professionals to build on their climate change knowledge.
