The PIEVC HLSG process is an approach for undertaking vulnerability, risk, and resilience assessments. It is flexible enough to be applied to full assets or systems, to a single element of infrastructure, or to an entire portfolio of numerous assets. PIEVC HLSG assessments result in the characterization and ranking of climate risk scenarios and the identification of those scenarios of highest priority for adaptation planning or more comprehensive analysis.
The PIEVC HLSG is designed to help provide a high-level assessment of the potential risks posed by climate change to infrastructure and related elements. Generally, the distinction between the PIEVC HLSG and the full PIEVC Protocol is the level of detail pursued at each step. The PIEVC HLSG process is written such that information can be obtained from readily available sources and based on a high degree of professional and engineering judgement. If more detail, scrutiny, or engineering judgement is required, you may choose to instead use the PIEVC Protocol. See the subsection in the PIEVC HLSG entitled “The PIEVC High Level Screening Guide” for more detail.
