Low-impact Development and Climate Resilience
Adaptation to climate change requires the adoption of resilient, engineered green infrastructure to manage stormwater from a quantitative and qualitative perspective. In 2021, W Booth School of Engineering Practice and Technology at McMaster University in collaboration with the Sustainable Technology Evaluation Program (STEP) and the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE) launched a professional training program focused on the emerging approaches to the design, construction, operation and maintenance of engineered green infrastructure. This webinar will provide an overview of emerging topics in low-impact development and the structure of the professional training programs available for municipal engineering professionals focused on climate resilience.

May 17, 2023 11:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
