WEBINAR: Understanding Infrastructure Canada’s Climate Lens

NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.

Date: Tuesday, November 20
Time: 2:30-3:30 NST (1:00-2:00pm EST)

The Climate Lens is a horizontal requirement applicable to Infrastructure Canada’s Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP).

Why is this important?

The ICIP is funding ten years of infrastructure projects in Newfoundland and Labrador. Program proponents could be asked to undertake one or both types of assessment within the Climate Lens.

What is the Climate Lens?

The Climate Lens has two components: the GHG mitigation assessment, which will measure the anticipated GHG emissions impact of an infrastructure project, and the climate change resilience assessment, which will employ a risk management approach to anticipate, prevent, withstand, respond to, and recover from a climate change related disruption or impact.

This webinar will provide an overview of the why and how of the Climate Lens.

Presenters include:

  • Chad Nelson, Principal Advisor, Green Infrastructure and Environmental Issues, Infrastructure Canada
  • Kristy Darragh, Senior Policy Analyst, Communities and Innovation, Infrastructure Canada
  • François Levesque, Policy Analyst, Green Infrastructure and Environmental Issues, Infrastructure Canada
