The Public Infrastructure Engineering Vulnerability Committee (PIEVC) was created in August 2005 to conduct an engineering assessment of the vulnerability of Canada’s public infrastructure to the impacts of climate change. Between August 2005 and June 2012 the committee’s activities were co-funded by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and Engineers Canada.
As of March, 2020, operations of the PIEVC Protocol and PIEVC Program have been assumed by the PIEVC Program Alliance, consisting of the Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction (ICLR), the Climate Risk Institute (CRI) and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.
In 2022, the PIEVC Program Advisory Committee (AC) was formed. The Advisory Committee holds quarterly meetings, provides strategic advice to the PIEVC Program Alliance, and provides critical review and oversight of PIEVC Products and outputs.
For additional information on the PIEVC Program and for proposed future direction of the Program, please see the PIEVC Program website, and the Backgrounder and Overview and the Vision, Goals, and Programming reports.
