Climate Change and Infrastructure Risk – the PIEVC Protocol

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

Course Start: Wednesday June 9, 2021

This online course provides participants with information about, and practice with the PIEVC Protocol, a practical tool and process that supports the systematic assessment of the risks of extreme weather and future climate in relation to public infrastructure. Developed in partnership with Natural Resources Canada, the Protocol is a structured procedure using standard risk assessment processes to assess and fully document the vulnerability of infrastructure to the impacts of current and future climate at a screening level, and related risks.

The Protocol has been applied to more than 50 infrastructure projects across Canada as well as in Costa Rica, Honduras, Brasil, Vietnam and the Nile River Basin. It has been applied to the design of new infrastructure as well as to existing infrastructure in need of rehabilitation or retrofitting. The results of the process inform not only engineers but also planners, managers and operators to improve their understanding and management of the impacts and risks that public infrastructure faces as the result of extreme weather events and our changing climate. 

This course will be of interest to engineers and other professionals who are involved in policy, planning, procurement, pre-design, design, operation, maintenance, management and regulation of infrastructure and who, now and in the future, need to consider the changing climate for these activities. It is one of six Courses comprising the Infrastructure Resilience Professional (IRP) credentialling program available to professional engineers. IRP modules include quizzes and testing to confirm participants’ learning outcomes for certification purposes. This and other IRP courses are also offered as Continuing Professional Development at a lower cost, for those engineers who do not want to pursue the IRP designation, or to other professionals who are not eligible to participate in the IRP program but wish to become familiar with the Protocol and its application.
