Building Climate Resilience into Road Programs 

Climate change is putting at risk the lives of millions of people worldwide, as well as 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, sea-level rise, and 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 state-of-the-art science 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 policymakers, road professionals, and the research community wishing to better understand and address one of the defining challenges for 21st century road programs.

  • Ensure your road investment delivers the best possible return and brings lasting development benefits
  • Learn about cost effective engineering solutions to make roads and bridges more resilient
