Session 1 – Green Infrastructure Levels of Service

Presented by the Green Infrastructure Ontario (GIO) Coalition.

This three-part course will provide municipal staff with an understanding of how to incorporate green infrastructure into the asset management planning process. Participants will learn about developing levels of service for green infrastructure as well as how to undertake lifecycle management and risk/criticality assessments for green infrastructure assets. For each of the topics, we will cover examples of natural, engineered, and enhanced green infrastructure assets. Learn more about the course.

ABOUT SESSION 1:

This session will focus on the second stage of asset management planning: defining levels of services. We will learn about levels of service and what they aim to do. We will provide an overview on how to define levels of service at a community and technical level, and how to measure performance and set performance targets. We will also work through examples of how these concepts can be applied to different types of green infrastructure assets.

Session 2 – Green Infrastructure Lifecycle Management and Costing

Presented by the Green Infrastructure Ontario (GIO) Coalition.

This three-part course will provide municipal staff with an understanding of how to incorporate green infrastructure into the asset management planning process. Participants will learn about developing levels of service for green infrastructure as well as how to undertake lifecycle management and risk/criticality assessments for green infrastructure assets. For each of the topics, we will cover examples of natural, engineered, and enhanced green infrastructure assets. Learn more about the course.

ABOUT SESSION 2:

In this session, participants will learn the typical stages of asset lifecycle management, from acquisition to disposal, and how these may or may not apply to green infrastructure. Development of a lifecycle management strategy is important because it identifies the management activities needed to ensure the provision of the proposed levels of service. We will also cover approaches to determining lifecycle costs for green infrastructure assets with some extra focus on natural assets. Finally, we will look at some examples of lifecycle management approaches for different types of green infrastructure.

Session 3 – Green Infrastructure Risk and Criticality

Presented by the Green Infrastructure Ontario (GIO) Coalition.

This three-part course will provide municipal staff with an understanding of how to incorporate green infrastructure into the asset management planning process. Participants will learn about developing levels of service for green infrastructure as well as how to undertake lifecycle management and risk/criticality assessments for green infrastructure assets. For each of the topics, we will cover examples of natural, engineered, and enhanced green infrastructure assets. Learn more about the course.

ABOUT SESSION 3:

This session will focus on conducting risk and criticality assessments for green infrastructure. Risk and criticality measures can allow municipalities to prioritize asset needs. This training will include information on modes of failure for green infrastructure assets, as well as how to assess probability of failure and consequence of failure and determine an overall criticality score. This session will also delve into different maturity levels for criticality assessments and discuss what types of analyses can be done at different levels of maturity.
