Presentations by:

Description:

Approximately 50% of Canadians believe their storm water systems are in good condition with only about one in five Canadians feeling stormwater systems require immediate major investment. The reality is, in Canada, the annual cost of flooding is anticipated to nearly triple to US$6.6 billion by 2030 if adaptation measures are not taken. While climate tools exist to support municipalities to determine future flood risks, there is a lack of financial tools that allow municipalities and conservation authorities to build the business case for adaptation. To address this gap, Credit Valley Conservation Authority, and the Peel Climate Change Partnership, have developed a Risk and Return on Investment Tool (RROIT) to help make evidence-based, cost-effective decisions to reduce flood and erosion risks. This session will provide an overview of the Tool and share insights from the City of Mississauga and the Town of Caledon about how flooding is being considered in climate action and stormwater master plans.
