Climate Change Impacts



Climate Change Creates an Opportunity for Better Development

Climate Action Plans (CAPs) are fast becoming a policy norm for most cities globally. Identifying critical infrastructure and operations as well as the vulnerabilities that exist to climate is especially important for creating cost-effective management strategies.

The foundation of Resilient Analytics™ is in engineering risk management strategies – drawing upon an interdisciplinary team with knowledge in civil infrastructure, water, transportation, social impact and policy areas. Understanding the interconnected nature of infrastructure, its broader impacts on society and including financial analysis with a life-cycles approach allows Resilient Analytics™ to provide comprehensive risk management strategies to climate change in urban areas around the world.

Urban Infrastructure and Climate Change

The highly interdependent nature of cities means that all the lifeline infrastructure is even more important – failure in one area may affect many others. Climate change has the potential to dramatically affect existing infrastructure systems including roads, bridges, buildings and more. No-regret investment options are available to cities who want to understand and manage climate risk. The time to act is now.

An Imperative for Development

Integrating climate change adaptation strategies into daily planning is an important aspect of a resilient development strategy. However, these strategies are only effective if they are based upon rigorous and reliable data. Resilient Analytics™ uses globally-accepted IPCC-approved climate change weather models to inform about specific vulnerabilities and adaptations for critical infrastructure.

Strategy for Addressing Climate Change Risk

Employed with clients including the World Bank, The Asian Development Bank (ADB), the United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER), the Government of South Africa, The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the City of Boulder and more, Resilient Analytics' software tool IPSS™ provides state-of-the-art engineering, policy and risk management tools for asset managers to understand and act now on climate change.
