Assessing Climate Hazards: The First Step in Resilient Design
The headlines are everywhere—from heat waves in Europe to wildfires in the Western U.S. to tidal flooding in Florida.
In this age of climate change, just as there’s an urgent need to reduce carbon emissions and other greenhouse gasses, we also need to adapt and invest in resilience. Increasingly, owners are asking for risk assessments to inform strategies for resilient design. ASTM even has a Property Resilience Assessment standard under development.
This course provides sources for the first step of a risk assessment: identifying hazards and understanding exposure.
