XXIIe session ordinaire du Conseil de la CCE et réunions du Comité consultatif public mixte

À la lumière de l’engagement qu’a pris le CCPM d’examiner les problèmes liés à l’eau lors de chacune de ses réunions cette année, ainsi que du thème annuel choisi par le Conseil (Changements climatiques, adaptation et résilience), cette session portera sur L’eau et les changements climatiques : S’adapter grâce aux infrastructures vertes.

Les participants à cette réunion discuteront de la façon dont on a utilisé les infrastructures vertes et l’aménagement du territoire à l’échelle de l’Amérique du Nord pour gérer les effets de l’évolution des eaux de ruissellement en milieu urbain et rural. Ils examineront également les bienfaits conjoints des approches qu’ils proposent pour la santé humaine, en particulier en ce qui concerne le traitement des eaux usées, la restauration de la qualité de l’eau, l’accès à une eau saine et la réduction des îlots de chaleur, mais aussi la conservation de la biodiversité et la réduction des émissions de gaz à effet de serre.

Le public est invité à participer sans frais à la session du Conseil et à la tribune du CCPM.

Panel I: Stormwater in Cities

As some cities struggle, during and after extreme weather events, with excess stormwater from rainfall and melted snow, green infrastructure has proven to be an effective and sustainable water management strategy. This session will feature examples and a discussion of municipal-level initiatives that use green infrastructure to reduce property damage and improve water quality and mitigate water pollution and flooding.

Panel II: Adapting to Changing Stormwater Quantities through Land-use Planning

Changes in the timing and intensity of storms has altered the quantity of water from rainfall and melted snow in certain regions of North America. Stormwater runoff has exacerbated mudslides, coastal and riverbank erosion, and flooding. Changes in climate and land use have combined to worsen periodic stormwater flood patterns. Improved stormwater infrastructure and management could help ameliorate this and also address issues of water conservation and sustainable use. Different kinds of green infrastructure, along with better land-use planning, can help us adapt to changing conditions.
