CRI Horizontal line-1920px-wide

The PIEVC Program Alliance is pleased to announce the launch of the PIEVC Practitioner’s Network through the upcoming Climate Change Vulnerability and Risk Assessment Infrastructure Webinar Series and Global Forum.

The Public Infrastructure Engineering Vulnerability Committee (PIEVC) Protocol was developed to assist engineers in factoring climate change impacts into plans for design, operation, and maintenance of infrastructure and buildings. The community of PIEVC practitioners is rapidly growing across Canada and the world, and practices are evolving. This Practitioners’ Network will create new connections among individuals and organizations and engender a renewed sense of shared purpose for those whose practice involves planning for and building climate resilient built environments, communities, and economies. 

** Please note, the time of each webinar will vary based on time zones of international presenters. All webinars will be recorded and available to all registrants.

The PIEVC Alliance, includes the Climate Risk Institute (CRI), the Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction (ICLR), the Ontario First Nations Technical Services Corporation, and the project The PIEVC Alliance, includes the Climate Risk Institute (CRI), the Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction (ICLR), the Ontario First Nations Technical Services Corporation, and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).

We are actively looking for sponsors to better support the Global Forum planning and delivery. Please contact Claire Sanders at the Climate Risk Institute if you are interested in learning more about the webinar series or global forum.
