Tools


Tool to evaluate the vulnerability of infrastructures: Engineering protocol of the Engineers Canada Public Infrastructures Engineering Vulnerability Committee


Decision aid tool to identify regulatory and technical solutions to flooding and erosion problems in a coastal area developed by a team of experts coordinated by the Atlantic Climate Adaptation Solutions Association (ACASA).
This tool consists of a series of questions dealing with erosion/flooding problems affecting a site and the physical characteristics of the coastal area of the site. Once the answers have been selected, the tool generates outputs that present adaptation solutions ranked according to their relevance to the site. A user name and password can be obtained from the ACASA.

Possible solutions

Adapting to climate change requires the implementation of several complementary measures on the same territory to ensure the safety of both the public and infrastructures. Here are some possible solutions.
