MISSION STATEMENT

Building Global Resilience One Community at a Time

 

VISION STATEMENT

To increase environmental, economic, social, and cultural climate resilience, empowering communities to move from reactive to proactive climate resilient strategies.

TBEC has developed process-based models for environmental risks and adaptation assessments, including methods to reduce the impacts of a changing climate on:

  • Infrastructure (e.g., buildings, roads, ports, bridges, fuel farms, pipelines, airports, impermeability, etc.)

  • Hydrology (e.g., flooding, stream flow and water quality)

  • Sea Level rise and wave modelling

  • Extreme weather events (e.g., storm surge, extreme rainfall, extreme heat, drought)

  • Erosion

  • Coastal & shoreline dynamics

  • Agriculture

  • Forestry

  • Marine ecosystems dynamics and wildlife habitats

  • Terrestrial ecosystems dynamics and wildlife habitats

  • Riverine ecosystems dynamics and wildlife habitats

  • Subsistence lifestyles 

  • Wildfire risks

  • Sanitation (e.g., sewer, clean water, water treatment)

 

We use potential climates (e.g., rainfall, temperature, wind, vapor pressure deficit), as the driving variables in established process models (e.g., terrestrial, hydrology) to predict areas that may have increased vulnerabilities to climate change, such as from erosion, flooding, drought, wildfire, water quality, biomass shifts, etc. The models are also used in determining effective adaptation strategies (both natural adaptation such as biome or wildlife habitat shifts, and human influenced adaptation) through a combination of scenario and sensitivity analysis, to determine the cumulative effects of climate change.

 

A primary goal of our work has been to reduce risks and increase resilience across the impacted facility, site and/or environment. We have coordinated and led multidisciplinary teams to develop scientifically-based environmental programs that bridge the state-of-knowledge science with applied research and traditional knowledge to answer specific environmental questions such as, ‘What will the future look like?’, ‘How will it affect me and my lifestyle?’ and ‘What is the risk to my business?’
