IRF held a practitioner-driven seminar on "Road System Resilience to Climate Change & Extreme Weather Events" in Goyang, Korea, on November 15-17, 2017.

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.
