Provide disaster reduction stakeholders the opportunity to build a guide to effectively use natural hazard-assessment knowledge in Canada, and foster a risk mitigation network.
The three planned events are meant to further build a land-use guide. The land-use guide was started by stakeholders in September of 2010 through a simulation exercise and workshop. The guide is intended for use by municipal staff to help them make informed land-use decisions that minimize the risk of creating disasters. The guide will be web-based.
These workshops, and communications surrounding them, are a contribution to building a multidisciplinary risk mitigation network in Canada.
