Joint FHWA and Rijkswaterstaat Report ‘Resilient Infrastructure’

From 2013 and onwards the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Rijkswaterstaat have worked together on the theme of ‘Resilience to Climate Change and Extreme Weather Events’. The collaboration has shown there are valuable tools and knowledge on both sides that are worth sharing and implementing. The goal of this report is to help to improve FHWA and Rijkswaterstaat processes towards resilience of infrastructure to climate change. To that end the report describes strategies, methods, reports and best practices in both the USA and the Netherlands (and where relevant other European countries) to help to increase the resilience of infrastructure to climate change in a better, smarter, and more cost effective way. The process to work towards resilient infrastructure can be divided into three main phases: 1. vulnerability and risk assessment, 2. developing and incorporating adaptation options and 3. managing adaptation options. This report is roughly structured along these phases.
