How can Canadian coastal communities understand and mitigate against coastal flooding?
Canada has the longest coastline in the world, approximately 243,000 kilometres of diverse geographies and geomorphologies, including fiords, arctic tundra, river deltas, bluffs and sandy or rocky beaches. The impacts of coastal flooding, tsunamis and related coastal hazards vary across these landscapes. Approximately 6,570,000 people live in communities along Canada’s coast. Many of them depend on the ocean to make their living in fisheries, shipping or other related industries. The short presentation will provide background on a new project that applies science and technology (S&T) to advance operational capabilities, assess and model coastal hazards and risks at various scales across Canada. The outcomes of this project are intended to inform decision-making, reduce current and future risks, and help communities adapt to a changing climate to become more resilient to these hazards.
