Provide disaster reduction stakeholders the opportunity to build a guide to effectively use natural hazard-assessment knowledge in Canada, and foster a risk mitigation network.

The three planned events are meant to further build a land-use guide. The land-use guide was started by stakeholders in September of 2010 through a simulation exercise and workshop. The guide is intended for use by municipal staff to help them make informed land-use decisions that minimize the risk of creating disasters. The guide will be web-based.

The record of event proceedings, including discussion and presentations will be distributed through the SFU Centre for Natural Hazard Research (CNHR) website (www.sfu.ca/cnhr), and be available from other venues.

These workshops, and communications surrounding them, are a contribution to building a multidisciplinary risk mitigation network in Canada.
