Climate Changes, Vulnerability and Resilience in Transport Infrastructure

Join Teams meeting:

As it has evolved into the era of global boiling, a period characterized by heightened temperatures due to climate changes, this presentation shows the pivotal concept of resilience as a strategic framework encompassing adaptive methodologies and innovative solutions in response to the challenges by our planet’s shifting climatic patterns. The presentation navigates the landscape of net zero policies and low emission strategies, examining their potential within the realm of transportation systems. Additionally, we will explore the paradigm of smart mobility hubs, tangible examples of resilience in transport infrastructure, designed to mitigate and adapt to the multifaceted impacts of global boiling. Through case studies, Columbus, Ohio, USA, and Seoul, Korea, we will show the various aspects of a resilient transport infrastructure within the epoch of global boiling.
