This conference will begin to answer the question on all engineers’ minds: How can New Brunswick engineers consider future climate conditions when making decisions on designing, building, replacing or repairing infrastructure?
The Université de Moncton, along with its partners, Natural Resources Canada, the New Brunswick Department of Environment and Local Government, UNB and the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of New Brunswick (APEGNB), are collaborating to build capacity for engineers to adapt to changing environmental conditions in New Brunswick.
You are invited to participate in the first of a series of conferences to help ensure that the impacts of climate change and extreme weather events are considered in all infrastructure decisions in our province. This conference applies to all engineering sectors including design, operations, maintenance, planning, specifications, tendering and post-secondary engineering education.
Dr. Guy Félio, P. Eng., FCSCE, an international expert on infrastructure resilience, will focus on the area of asset management and adaptation of the built environment to climate change by reducing vulnerability and increasing resilience to climate change of our critical infrastructure (roadways, buildings, potable water, sewers, electricity etc.).
The latest New Brunswick facts and projections on OUR changing climate will be presented by Réal Daigle, a leading consulting climatologist, in relation to climate change, variability in temperature, precipitation, IDF curves, sea-level rise, storm surge and extreme weather and, most importantly, where to find this latest credible data to help you make better-informed engineering decisions.
