The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Library, March 2022 Journal Highlights feature “Incorporating Climate Uncertainties in Dam Safety Management and Governance.” First published in the Journal of Water Resources Planning and Management, the article entitled “Accounting for Climate Change Uncertainty in Long‐Term Dam Risk Management” was authored by Javier Fluixá‐Sanmartín, Ignacio Escuder‐Bueno, Adrián Morales‐Torres, and Jesica Tamara Castillo‐Rodríguez.

Authors Fluixá‐Sanmartín et al. assert that “…risk assessments must incorporate risks arising from climate‐induced uncertainties while prioritizing cost‐effectiveness.” Regrettably, many of the current risk assessments by infrastructure stakeholders worldwide wrongly assume “stationarity” — a dangerous misconception where risks remain static over time. In summary, as a call to action to infrastructure stakeholders: risk assessments must account for climate uncertainties.
