Transportation Resilience 2023 on Extreme Weather and Climate Change Challenges

Convened by the Transportation Research Board or TRB, the Transportation Resilience 2023 conference features panel discussions, expert presentations, and poster sessions. The conference is in person at the National Academy of Sciences Building in Washington, D.C., with hybrid sessions. Further, Transportation Resilience 2023 “provides attendees with information on emerging best practices and state-of-the-art research results on how to adapt transportation networks to the potential impacts of climate change and extreme weather events. The focus includes vulnerability and resilience to climate change and extreme weather events impacting all modes of transportation, including pedestrian, automobile, rail, transit, aviation, and pipeline facilities and critical infrastructure.”

The event addresses resilience integration across the transportation sector, including but not limited to, design, engineering, planning, operations and maintenance (O&M), asset management, and emergency management and communications. The target audience includes transportation practitioners, researchers, educators, consultants, government agencies, businesses, advocacy groups, and other stakeholders from around the world. Organizers welcome and encourage participation from local, tribal, state, national, and international perspectives.

Transportation Resilience 2023 Conference Objectives

  • Develop common understandings of transportation resilience concepts and state of practice
  • Share approaches for integrating climate resilience into agency processes, design standards, and standards of practice
  • Learn new methods for prioritizing and evaluating performance of resilience investments
  • Discuss transportation resilience funding and financing challenges and opportunities
  • Discover successful approaches for meaningful community engagement around transportation resilience
  • Develop an international peer learning network to exchange ideas

National Academy of Sciences Building, 2101 Constitution Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C., USA

Transportation Research Board Webinar On Addressing Climate Change Challenges

Transportation Research Board Webinar On Addressing Climate Change Challenges

 

The resilience of our transportation networks to future weather and climate extremes is mission-critical to our systems, services, and societies. The Transportation Research Board (TRB) hosts a webinar Transportation Resilience Addressing Climate Change Challenges on July 26, 2023, to “…highlight emerging evidence-based best practices on resilience planning, projects, recovery, processes, and programs.” Further, the presenters focus on understanding vulnerability and improving resilience to all forms of transportation.

During the webinar on climate change and transportation resilience, the presenters “…share efforts to integrate resilience in other aspects of the transportation sector…” across the total asset lifecycle, including planning and design, operations and maintenance (O&M), and asset and emergency management. Also, the webinar supports TRB’s Transportation Resilience 2023 conference on how to adapt transportation networks to climate change and extreme weather impacts.

Learning objectives of the webinar on climate change challenges include: prioritizing and evaluating new methods and the performance on resilience investments; sharing approaches for integrating climate resilience into agency processes, design standards, and standards of practice; and, developing a shared understanding of transportation resilience concepts and state of practice. The webinar is sponsored by TRB’s Standing Technical Committee on Extreme Weather and Climate Adaptation.
