Global Resiliency Dialogue on Climate Risks and Building Codes

As a result of climate change, the intensity, duration, frequency, and location of adverse and extreme weather events are increasing. Accordingly, both public and private sector organizations must take proactive measures to prepare for climate risks.

Infrastructure standards and building codes support the health, safety, environment, and welfare of citizens and communities. On balance, building code developers and researchers worldwide need to address current and future challenges of weather hazards.

A global consortium of building code developers and researchers formed the Global Resiliency Dialogue group, with the goal to inform building code development and improve adverse weather resilience, by leveraging building and climate science.

In the summary entitled “Findings on Changing Risk and Building Codes,” the Global Resiliency Dialogue group outlines objectives and defines strategies to inform building code development and improve adverse weather resilience.

Climate Data and Assessment of Extreme Weather Event Risks

Climate Data and Assessment of Extreme Weather Event Risks

As a result of intensifying risks to infrastructure worldwide, a global consortium of building code developers and researchers from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United States formed the Global Resiliency Dialogue, with the goal to inform building code development and improve adverse weather resilience, by leveraging building and climate science.

The members of the Global Resiliency Dialogue surveyed building code development and research organizations on how national building codes and standards address climate risks, and then published the results of the survey in a report entitled “The Use of Climate Data and Assessment of Extreme Weather Event Risks in Building Codes Around the World.”

Further, the report reviews numerous types of building codes dependent on climate data to support respective requirements. In the “Findings on Changing Risk and Building Codes” summary, the Global Resiliency Dialogue outlines objectives and defines strategies to inform building code development and improve adverse weather resilience.
