Public Infrastructure Engineering Vulnerability Committee (PIEVC): Canadian Case Studies

2007 to 2019 – Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction and Climate Risk Institute

The PIEVC Engineering Protocol systematically reviews historical climate information and projects the nature, severity and probability of future climate changes and events. It establishes the adaptive capacity of an individual infrastructure as determined by its design, operation and maintenance. It includes an estimate of the severity of climate impacts on the components of the infrastructure (i.e. deterioration, damage or destruction) to enable the identification of higher risk components and the nature of the threat from the climate change impact. This information can be used to make informed engineering judgments on what components require adaptation as well as how to adapt them.

Here are a series of case study reports and presentations from across Canada that reflect community experiences using the PIEVC Engineering Protocol.
