Incorporating Climate Uncertainties in Dam Safety Management and Governance

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.

Fluixá‐Sanmartín et al. investigate how climate change creates new risks to dam safety across long-term time horizons. Further, the authors question how dam stakeholders today evaluate the effects of climate change as a part of risk assessment. How will future weather and climate extremes, such as heavy precipitation and severe drought, impact high and low water levels at dams?
