Information about an opportunity to participate in a Flood and Natural Hazard Risk Assessment for Saskatchewan was announced in January’s Municipalities Today newsletter.
Government Relations has limited space for additional municipal participation in six regional stakeholder workshops regarding natural hazard risks to our communities, infrastructure and economy. Natural hazards such as floods, fires and drought cause serious impacts and affect people’s lives. The intensity, duration, frequency and variability of these risks are changing, and forcing people and industry to adapt. The goal of this work is to better understand how Saskatchewan can strengthen its capacity and resiliency to cope with natural disasters.
We are looking for municipal officials with expertise in how natural disasters affect your communities, your local infrastructure, economy and environment. Those with knowledge of local disaster preparedness capacity, what is working, and what may need to be improved to mitigate risks and impacts, will also be interested in these workshops.
Local disaster mitigation knowledge is essential to participate in this daylong workshop. We are planning for each workshop to include a mix of local stakeholders and some targeted subject matter experts.
