Description

Building Climate Resilience into Road Programs

Climate change is putting at risk the lives of millions of people worldwide, many coastal cities, and trillions of dollars of investment in transport infrastructure and services. A transport system that cannot withstand the emerging impacts of climate change will prove burdensome, impose high costs for repair, and cause significant economic losses.
Action is needed to diagnose systemic weaknesses and adapt transport systems to withstand expected climate impacts such as changes in rainfall, flooding, and sea-level rise as well as extreme weather events. This requires a better understanding of existing vulnerability assessment tools, cost-effective engineering measures and technologies all designed to ensure robustness, redundancy and resilience are designed into road networks.
Building on the scientific state of the art and a selection of real world case studies from different fields of structural engineering (highways, low-volume roads, bridges & underground structures), this international convention is a key meeting place for policy-makers, road professionals and the research community wishing to better understand an address one of the defining challenges for 21st century road programs.

Why Attend:
  • Ensure your road investments delivers the best possible return and brings lasting development benefits
  • Learn about cost effective engineering solution to make roads and bridges more resilient
  • Find out about new materials and technologies for resilient roads
  • Get exposed to how innovative road & transportation agencies are dealing with climate change
  • Gain Key insight on how development banks and financing institutions are dealing with climate resilient
