The costs of flood damage in Canada are high and are likely to increase with climate change. Cité-ID LivingLab is working with researchers on a comparative study of local and regional governance of flood risk management in Canada.
In particular, the Cité-ID seeks to better understand the effectiveness of governance mechanisms related to flooding and urban resilience in the greater Montréal area. The research project aims to assess current modes of governance and provide public decision-makers with evidence-based recommendations to improve community resilience and reduce vulnerability to flood risks.
