March 2013

This research study presents recommendations for the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) to continue working toward being more resilient, flexible, and responsive to the effects of global climate change.

Climate Adaptation and Extreme Weather Resiliency

Climate change and extreme weather are pressing issues for transportation agencies. Stressors can be unpredictable, and vary across regions. CS integrates climate change resiliency into transportation planning activities, a more effective—and cost-effective—approach than taking sporadic steps toward adaptation. Our research, risk assessment and analysis are instrumental in protecting transportation systems and assets.
