RSI launched the Climate Change Hazards Information Portal (CCHIP) at the Adaptation Canada 2016 conference held in Ottawa.
CCHIP is a web-based tool that helps empower organizations of all sizes and capacities to integrate climate change impacts into their planning and design decisions to help protect private and public infrastructure, resources and public health.

Risk Sciences International, the developers of CCHIP, have provided highly advanced, leading-edge climate analyses for infrastructure and climate vulnerability assessment using Engineers Canada PIEVC Protocol for the past several years. Having this kind of analysis within an analytical system like CCHIP will enable engineers to more readily incorporate current and future climate parameters for resilient infrastructure design, operations and maintenance.
