About this project

CCNL’s Rural Asset Management in a Changing Climate (RAMCC) Project is a holistic, innovative approach to combine traditional asset management with climate change initiatives for small and rural communities in Newfoundland and Labrador. We are working to improve the health and sustainability of municipal infrastructure from a financial, social, and environmental perspective, while incorporating the challenges that climate change will bring to our communities.

The RAMCC Project will enable our partner communities to apply climate change adaptation and mitigation measures when prioritizing and planning for new infrastructure projects, renewal and replacement of existing infrastructure, and municipal service delivery.

Conservation Corps NL is proud to be partnered with four forward-thinking communities on this project: Brigus, Clarke’s Beach, Cupids, and South River.

The RAMCC Project is financially supported by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and the Government of Canada.
