Civil Engineering Systems’ Resilience to Climate Threats

Civil engineering systems are increasingly threatened by extreme climatic events, as well as by the chronic effects of climate changing including mean sea level rise and water scarcity. These climate impacts threaten the performance of whole infrastructure systems as well as individual assets. This Special Issue focusses upon the resilience of infrastructure systems, which incorporates their capacity to resist, cope with, and recover from climate-related shocks. We will publish new research and demonstrations of methods to identify and implement resilient responses to climate-related threats in infrastructure systems. We are particularly keen to identify new socio-technical adaptations to the threats from climate change and new methods for appraising and implementing resilient responses.
