Infrastructure in the United States and globally is vulnerable to climate change impacts due to transportation and water/wastewater infrastructure projects sited in high-risk locations, such as stream beds subject to flash flooding, coastal areas prone to experience high tides, and open land areas subject to wind/cyclones. 

Damages to US infrastructure alone could top $15 billion by 2050 according to studies conducted by the US EPA.

These vulnerabilites represent significant opportunities for engineering firms, as governments worldwide analyze the impact of climate change on existing and future infrastructure elements and identify steps that can be taken now to modify infrastructure design and construction in light of the new data. 

Understanding the most at-risk sectors and regions is your firm's starting point to leveraging these opportunities.

Join Paul Chinowsky for a 90-minute session to gain a deeper and deeply practical understanding of:  

  • Recent national and regional studies indicating locations and sectors where infrastructure is vulnerable
  • Current planning being done by municipalities and the changing concepts of criticality
  • Regional/municipal infrastructure resiliency planning to ensure continue public services
  • Coastal planning for reinforcing or moving coastal roads and infrastructure
  • Structural analysis of bridge and waterway structures to ensure resiliency for upcoming hydrologic changes
  • Analysis of rural and secondary roads to understand emerging maintenance requirements
  • Design analysis of existing and new structures for changes in building system requirements
