Resilient Analytics has demonstrated through work in over 50 countries and for entities ranging from county governments to international banks that climate change impacts need to be identified and actionable adaptation plans developed. The potential impacts of climate change can be identified through specific steps that can be taken now to identify vulnerabilities, prioritize critical infrastructure, and serve as a basis for planning the appropriate way to address projected changes and impacts to businesses, the general public, and critical infrastructure.
Identify Your Climate Vulnerabilities
The analysis generated by Resilient Analytics is unique in that it provides decision support at multiple spatial and temporal scales. By first determining the future climate changes— stressors—that will negatively impact infrastructure, Resilient Analytics utilizes a wide range of climate models to establish future impacts from changes in factors including temperature, precipitation and flooding.
Determine Your Options and Costs
Resilient Analytics analyzes the specific impacts climate stressors will have on infrastructure including roads, rail, buildings, and bridges. Utilizing engineering and design guidelines, Resilient Analytics analyzes each asset for potential impacts and resilience opportunities. Impacts are quantified as fiscal costs and risks. Adaptation options are presented in terms of adaptation versus maintenance-only strategies.
