Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Government of Canada has produced the 'Case Studies on Climate Change in Floodplain Mapping' document in support of flood mitigation efforts. This document is part of the Federal Floodplain Mapping Guidelines Series and provides examples of the application of climate change scenarios to floodplain mapping. While there is general agreement that the incorporation of climate change is necessary, there are currently no standards or best practices that can be applied broadly for floodplain mapping. This document is a compilation of three case studies from British Columbia and Newfoundland and Labrador to provide a learning opportunity for practitioners and others responsible for developing and using floodplain maps. This work supports long-term plans to develop a standard approach to incorporate climate change considerations into floodplain mapping.
