Because You Can't Afford Not to Know
From extreme and prolonged droughts to unprecedented intense precipitation - severe weather has become more frequent. It is the "new abnormal" in Canada and beyond. Industry, governments and communities are all grappling with this emergent source of risk, and for good reason.
The cost of severe weather due to climate change is dramatically on the rise worldwide, introducing new and elevated risks to employee safety, infrastructure, supply chains, operational continuity and social licence to operate.
Be on the Vanguard
There is good news. Leading natural resource companies, electrical utilities, professional associations, government agencies and others are taking severe weather trends more seriously as losses mount. Wild Weather Forecast is your opportunity to learn about and discuss the challenges, the latest innovations and the new collaborations, tools and knowledge needed for the future management of Canada's natural resources.
