Workshop Scope

A one-day workshop to assess systems that reduce the risk of disastrous damage to critical infrastructure from natural events in western Canada (earthquakes, floods, landslides, severe storms, tsunamis). We will discuss, through the World Café format, improvements to existing remediation systems and explore new ways of reducing damage from natural disasters. Discussions will be preceded by presentations summarizing existing Canadian risk reduction systems and system innovations. The focus will be on increasing resilience through prevention, rather than response.

The workshop second circular is available for Download as pdf format.
