Workshops on methods for assessing the costs of floods

As part of the CEC’s 2019-2020 project, Costing Floods and Other Extreme Events, this workshop  is to convene experts from Indigenous, research and academic organizations, to discuss the incorporation of Indigenous perspectives in a proposed standardized North American methodology  for costing floods and to evaluate   its potential application to the assessment of the costs of cascading hazards (for example, fires > floods > landslides).
