Advancing Best Practices

There is a lot we can learn from each other when it comes to flood resilience. Here is a series of webinars, workshops, literature reviews and case studies from around the world and locally sharing problems and solutions for flood resilience. Have an idea for  a future solutions webinar let us know.

Challenges and Solutions to Flood Infrastructure Workshop

This workshop and resultant report used floodgates as a way to investigate the various life stages of flood infrastructure, from planning and design, to permitting, and implementation, to maintenance and monitoring. We asked participants to discuss the biggest challenges for flood infrastructure in their communities, and ideas for how to improve the process. You can find the workshop recording here, featuring a presentation from City of Surrey's Coastal Adaptation Engineer, Matt Osler.
