Abstract

1.2M citizens call Calgary, situated at the confluence of the Bow and Elbow Rivers home. These mountain fed rivers provide Calgary with drinking water supply, historical, cultural, recreation and other ecosystem goods and services, but as evident in 2013, can also present risks associated with extreme flooding. Since 2013 the City of Calgary has developed and is implementing a river flood resilience strategy which has combined local and regional, structural and non-structural resilience elements working synergistically toward an ever more  sustainable, adaptive Calgary.
