CCHIP uses tailored algorithms with data from large networks of monitoring stations and collections of climate models to produce defensible, decision-ready information.
By a team which includes IPCC authors/reviewers and the Chair of the Climate Change Working Group of the Climate Load Task Force of the National Code Commission of Canada.
CCHIP provides actionable insights to help decision-makers plan and prepare for future climate impacts.
CCHIP makes complex climate data and model outputs accessible to a wider range of planners and decision-makers than ever before with an easy-to-use, web-based interface.
CCHIP combines local data with sector-specific parameters to generate insights that reflect conditions of direct relevance to decision-makers.
The time for action on climate change is upon us! CCHIP provides decision-makers from across public and private sectors with the insight needed to adapt to future climate challenges.
“Translating climate science into actionable information is of critical importance. Given the impacts of climate change are already upon us, our mandate is more urgent than ever. We would like to see CCHIP become an important part of what we do.”
“Having worked with RSI on climate change and flooding risk assessments in our region, I am excited to see that same expertise embedded in CCHIP. We are evaluating how to use CCHIP to power upcoming flood risk assessment and asset management products of our own.”
“We are familiar with many of the analytics behind CCHIP and based on that consider CCHIP a promising tool with the potential to identify thresholds for infrastructure failure that are critical to public safety and asset protection.”
Risk Sciences International, the developers of CCHIP, have provided highly advanced, leading-edge climate analyses for infrastructure and climate vulnerability assessment using Engineers Canada’s 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.
“We see CCHIP playing a critical role in providing the users of our standards with the information and insights they need to build the climate-resilient infrastructure of tomorrow. CSA is driving action on climate-resilient infrastructure and we foresee a close relationship with CCHIP.”
“One of the most persistent challenges in adaptation decision-making has been the accessibility and format of climate information. CCHIP is an enormous step in the right direction as its sector-specific information and user-friendly interface simplify climate adaptation decision making like never before.”
Climate change is a reality, and CCHIP provides the most comprehensive data, analysis and projections to ensure governments, industries and organizations can minimize the threats and maximize the opportunities it brings.
Transforms outputs from all the most recent Global Climate Models (GCMs), and other climate information, into actionable insights.
Uses quality controlled data from numerous networks and large ensembles of models, with the oversight of staff with decades of climate and meteorological experience.
Cost-effective, web-based portal makes climate change data and impacts accessible to smaller organizations.
