BRACE Core Team courses (added October 28, 2021)

The Building Regional Adaptation Capacity and Expertise (BRACE) Core Team is offering introductory climate change courses coming this winter.

These courses will give engineers, planners and geoscientists a shared foundation of the most up-to-date climate science information. In the new year, the BRACE infrastructure sector will offer three courses of particular interest to engineers, geoscientists and infrastructure decision-makers:

  • Infrastructure Climate Risk Assessment and How to Conduct an Assessment Featuring the Public Infrastructure Engineering Vulnerability Committee (PIEVC);
  • An Introduction to Climate Change through Codes, Standards, and Regulations and
  • Nature-based Infrastructure Solutions to Enhance Resilience

All BRACE courses will be offered free of charge.

 Climate Change 101 is the first of 18 courses being offered at no charge by Manitoba Climate Resilience Training (MCRT) project and open to anyone interested. Climate Change 101 is also the first of nine specifically recommended by Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba as a “Foundational and Infrastructure Path” for infrastructure professionals and decision-makers to enhance climate knowledge and help integrate climate risk and opportunities into decision-making and planning within the infrastructure sector in Manitoba.

Three of the nine courses on the Foundational and Infrastructure Path are being developed and delivered by Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba.

MCRT is part of the Building Regional Adaptation Capacity and Expertise (BRACE) initiative of the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change. The project aims to build the capacity and expertise of professionals (including engineers and planners), the business community in Northern Manitoba, and Indigenous organizations and communities to address the risks associated with climate change.
