Climate Change Adaptation Guidelines
The following guidelines address climate change at the municipal, provincial, and national scale, supplamenting our Professional Practice Guidelines - Incorporating Climate Resilience in the Design of Highway Infrastructure in British Columbia and our Professional Practice Guidelines- Legislated Flood Assessments in a Changing Climate in BC.
This document provides guidelines to support the development and implementation of land-use management plans forlands that are exposed to coastal flood hazards and sea level rise due to climate change.
BC Ministry of Environment 2011 Guidelines for Management of Coastal Flood Hazard Land Use
This Best Practices Document provides guidance on integrating climate change considerations into ongoing management, planning, engineering, maintenance and operations activities within the BCMoTI. It outlines general approaches to consider for adapting practices to accommodate impacts of changing climate on B.C. highway infrastructure systems.
2014 Best Practices Document
These guidelines provide nine principles as a basis for sound professional judgement to ensure that engineers consider the implications of climate change in their professional practice and that they create a clear record of the outcomes of those considerations.
Engineers Canada National Guidelines on Climate Change Adaptation for Engineers
This manual adresses the vulnerability of transportation facilities to extreme events and climate change in riverine environments. The US Federal Highway Administration intends this manual to provide technical guidance grounded in the best available and actionable engineering and scientific data and approaches with a framework that is adaptable to future improvements.
Highways in the River Environment – Floodplains, Extreme Events, Risk, and Resilience
This Model Code of Practice provides further amplification and explanation to engineers and national engineering organizations to interpret and implement principles of climate change adaptation at a practical level.
These guidelines provide information about planning across the useful life of infrastructure, managing uncertainty, project specific considerations, and resilient design adjustments, relevant to buildings sector, and general civil engineering.
