Symposium 2018

403: Municipal Asset Planning

October 11, 2018

3:30pm - 4:30pm

This session will discuss “lessons learned” from the mining sector as they are incorporating Climate Change Uncertainty into their decision making process and how these lessons can be applied to the planning process.  Mines, like municipalities, have long lasting infrastructure and climate is an important input to mine design.  Mining companies have realized that observed trends in the historical record and the predicted significant changes in the climate in the future make it necessary to consider the impacts of a changing climate.  The decision making process used by mining companies is analogous to the planning process and will be highlighted using case studies from the Sudbury and international mining locations.
