Description

The Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) recognized information gaps in estimating economic impacts of floods in Canada, Mexico, and the United States. It initiated in 2019 a collaborative research project, led by experts from the three countries. During 2019-2021, this project entitled “Costing Floods and Other Extreme Events” has brought together governmental agencies, academic institutions, and stakeholders from the private sector and communities. The work presented in this policy brief is based on the detailed dialogue between the project’s collaborators, three expert workshops, one consultation with Indigenous researchers and leaders, and numerous consultations.
