A report on using best practices in designing climate-resilient infrastructure against extreme climate events, like typhoons and El Niño in the Philippines.
The study is about the nature-based horizontal levee that serves as flood protection, improves water quality, and as a climate adaptation measure.
The study proposes a bottom-up approach, starting at the community level, for a more successful climate adaptation and mitigation program implementation.
This study looks into the impact of climate change on the operational and structural performance of infrastructures such as roads, bridges, and buildings.
A study on urban flood resilience applies an interdisciplinary and catchment-based approach using Elwood, a suburb in Melbourne Australia as a case study.
The study by Dr. Behrooz Balaei and colleagues have investigated the technical characteristics of water supply that affect its resilience against disasters.
Traditional approach to water and flood management treats water as a "problem" and so, engineer-led. A new approach sees water as a potential opportunity.
To address the challenges of climate change and urbanisation, climate adaptation and mitigation need to be prioritised and included in land use planning.
The case study that Dr. Theuns Hennings conducted on the Funafuti runway and other coastal airports show impacts of sea-level rise on coastal runways.
Interesting facts, figures, and information on the current state of NZ's policies and regulation on climate change adaptation funding in this case study.
