Second ROADAPT Workshop to be held on 9-10th September 2013 in Paris

Two-day workshop on CEDR project entitled "Roads for today, Adapted for tomorrow - State of the art of climate change risk assessments for roads".

 

The consortium partners of the ROADAPT project, together with the Programme Executive Board of CEDR, are very pleased to invite you for a two-day workshop entitled "Roads for today, Adapted for tomorrow - State of the art of climate change risk assessments for roads".

Roadapt

The ROADAPT project is part of the CEDR Call 2012 Road owners adapting to climate change. It addresses all objectives in the call in an integral approach following the RIMAROCC (Risk Management for Roads in a Changing Climate) framework that was developed for ERA NET ROAD.

ROADAPT aims at providing:

  1. methodologies and tools enabling tailored and consistent climate data information and a good communication between climate researchers and road authorities, 
  2. a preliminary and fast quick scan for estimating the climate change related risks for roads, to be translated in an action plan for adaptation,
  3. a method for a socio economical impact analysis,
  4. a method for detailed vulnerability assessments and
  5. adaptation pathways plus strategy charts with specific input from adaptation techniques related to geotechnics and drainage, pavements and traffic management.

Programme outline

The workshop will cover 3 domains, in 3 half-days. For each domain, an example of threat will be introduced by a ROADAPT partner for illustrating the potential adaptation techniques.
