The Role of Infrastructure Planning in Flood Mitigation | A PRAC Webinar

This webinar was hosted by the Prairies Regional Adaptation Collaborative (PRAC) and focused on the growing exposure of built infrastructure to flood risk due to climate change, and the actions being taken to mitigate this risk.

An overview how climate change is impacting flood and natural hazard risks on the Prairies was provided, followed by, two case studies focusing on stormwater improvements in Claresholm, Alberta and water management in Yellow Quill First Nation, Saskatchewan.


The PRAC is an initiative aimed at helping decision-makers in the Prairie provinces target local climate change issues and help integrate climate change adaptation considerations into decision making in policy, planning and operations. It is a federal–provincial cost-shared program between Natural Resources Canada and the governments of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) acts as the secretariat for PRAC.
