Enhancing flood resilience
Climate change is increasing annual precipitation and flooding, affecting land and livelihoods.
‘Amphibious Housing’ – a flood mitigation strategy allowing homes to rest on the ground in dry conditions and float up on rising water during a flood, returning to their original positions as the floodwater dissipates.
Adapting to climate change
The Buoyant Foundation Project at the University of Waterloo is a non-profit organisation working to empower vulnerable communities through sustainable flood mitigation strategies.
