Civil Engineers Incorporate Climate Science into Design and Construction

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Committee on Technical Advancement (CTA) presents “Incorporating Climate Science into Design and Construction.” ASCE highlights how the increasing frequency and severity of extreme weather and climate stressors, as a result of climate change, pose new risks to our infrastructure systems and services worldwide.

Accordingly, ASCE developed its first sustainability roadmap, calling membership to action and leadership on climate adaptation. Further, the ASCE Committee on Adaptation to a Changing Climate (CACC) published a report “…identifying the primary manifestations of climate change on critical infrastructure and providing a framework to prioritize climate change adaptation.”

ASCE CACC and the ASCE Infrastructure Resilience Division (IRD) developed Manuals of Practice on Climate Resilient Infrastructure: Adaptive Design (140) and Hazard-Resilient Infrastructure: Analysis and Design (144). To supplement the manuals of practice, the two groups are developing additional documents to help civil engineers combat climate change.
