Access disruptions on roads following a disaster can cause significant social and economic losses. Risk informed infrastructure investment is critical to ensure the construction and maintenance of resilient road networks.
This report aims to help practitioners integrate climate resilience considerations into transport asset management and thus enhance climate resilience in the transport sectors of Small Island Developing States (SIDS).
India's transport sector is particularly exposed and vulnerable to the impacts of disasters. The fallout falls most heavily on vulnerable populations, hampering their access to economic opportunities, to education, healthcare and community interaction.
The growing density and connectivity of these networks make them more vulnerable to environmental shocks— heightened by a changing climate. So how exposed and vulnerable are transportation networks around the world?
When disasters and extreme events cause the closure or damage of transportation networks, how can governments and planners ensure that communities have access to critical services and amenities crucial for their recovery, wellbeing, and cohesion?
