STEP Webinar Series 2021

Abstract

What are the challenges and solutions to coastal erosion in Canada, and what we can learn from case studies across North America? How can improved erosion control practices bring about economic, environmental and community benefits? This session will address the causes of, and solutions to erosion along Canada’s marine coasts and freshwater lakes by examining several case studies and applying lessons learned. Our climate is changing; the water levels along our marine coasts and Great Lakes are fluctuating, there is higher intensity and more frequent storm events. These factors have caused more coastal erosion and flooding and thus prompted an increased focus on strategies to prepare for, respond to and/or mitigate adverse impacts on both public and private properties. This session includes the sub-themes of Integrated and Adaptive Approaches; Transboundary Water Management (Canada and US); and Policy and Governance. This session will be presented by international industry leaders who offer their experiences and perspectives via a case study approach that focuses on Canada and the United States.
