Building Climate Resilience at Island Health (Webinar)

2018 – Fraser Basin Council

Increasingly, climate change risks and hazards are impacting the public health sector, and they will have a significant impact on health facilities, both on its safety during extreme events and during daily operations. In this webinar, hear from Island Health about how they are tackling these risks through their climate change adaptation efforts. Their initiatives include the first ever Public Infrastructure Engineering Vulnerability Committee (PIEVC) assessment of a hospital in Canada for Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, a climate projection mapping project, a review of health sector specific adaptation tools, an extreme weather events impact surveys, and ongoing planning for the next stages of their adaptation work.

This webinar is part of the BC Regional Adaptation Collaborative (BC RAC) webinar series.
