Professionals interested in climate change topics related to public infrastructure may also wish to consider the PIEVC Protocol Course, a 5-part online course that provides participants with practice information related to 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. The course, developed by Engineers Canada in collaboration with Natural Resources Canada, is delivered by the Climate Risk Institute and begins November 18.
