Module 1

Data Structure and Source

Whether you decide to use the First Nations Infrastructure Resilience Toolkit (the Toolkit) for a
stand-alone Climate Risk Assessment (CRA) or to develop an Asset Management Plan (AMP), your
first step involves collecting information on the assets (i.e., infrastructure, buildings, facilities, or
other community assets).

Asset data likely exists in various forms within your organization. The data may have been
collected for funding and reporting purposes such as ACRS or ICMS, or for financial statements
such as PSAB 3150. Reference to assets may also be found in Comprehensive Community Plans or
other strategic plans (e.g., Housing Strategy or Economic Development Strategy). Additional asset
information can also be found in your insurance policy documents.

The FN-IRT framework is illustrated below.
