The City of Calgary (the City) has embarked on a climate resilience planning process in response to the
impactful climate changes being experienced by the City. This project contributes to the process by
conducting a climate risk and resilience assessment (CRRA) on the Manchester Complex (the Complex)
in accordance with the City’s Integrated Risk Management Framework and the Public Infrastructure Climate
Risk Assessment process.
The methodology applied in this project builds upon the City’s Public Infrastructure Climate Risk
Assessment process, which is based partially on the PIEVC process. It has been expanded to include adaptation
planning and reporting to align with the City’s climate risk framework.
The methodology consists of five procedural steps:
1. Impacts assessment
2. Consequence scoring
3. Risk assessment
4. Adaptation identification and prioritization
5. Options analysis
The process involved engaging with City staff and members of the design team through an online survey
and three virtual workshops to complete the climate hazard impacts assessment, score consequences, and
identify possible adaptation measures.
