Project Description

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. Using real world case studies taken from different fields of engineering, this course will help participants identify promising applications as well as knowledge gaps that can be addressed through information and capacity strengthening programs on one of the defining challenges for 21st century road programs.
