Climate and Asset Management Network
Network helps municipalities combine asset management
FCM's Climate and Asset Management Network offers peer-learning opportunities, training and a total of $1.6 million in grant funding to help Canadian municipalities better integrate climate change and sustainability goals into decision-making about infrastructure assets and services, such as roads, buildings and water and sanitation systems.
By embedding climate goals into their asset management planning, communities of all sizes can provide greater environmental, economic and social value for Canadians over the
The Climate and Asset Management Network is offering membership in two cycles. FCM has selected 19 municipalities from across Canada to participate in the network's first two-year cycle.
Working together to advance community asset management practices
Between November 2017 and January 2019 , participants will work with peers toward similar goals as they collaborate, learn from one another and enhance their asset management skills. Each community will also have access to a network of professionals and asset management resources for further support to develop or refresh an asset management policy, strategy or governance framework. Some municipalities will undertake additional projects to strengthen their asset management approaches. These activities will run until September 2019.
