Climate Change Adaptation for Infrastructure
“How will infrastructure need to adapt for climate change?”
Climate change is already having drastic effects all over the world. From rising sea levels to increased flood frequencies to omnipresent droughts, things are changing for sure. As a result, we will have to change the way we use our infrastructure to meet the needs of the future. To illustrate, let’s take buildings as an example. Because of the effects of climate change, newer buildings must now use less water as well as be able to withstand all forms of drastic weather conditions. By undergoing climate change adaptation for infrastructure, we can prevent losses from further environmental catastrophes.
