Improving the uptake of Climate change Adaptation in the decision making processes of Road aUthoritieS
For a majority of European National Road Authorities, incorporating climate change and resilience concepts in decision making is a balancing act between ambitions, the newest approaches and technologies vs pragmatic and proven practices, information needs vs data availability, expected service levels and investments.
How do you build and implement the business case for resilience via adaptation, balancing the service levels that the road network needs to achieve with the costs and benefits for enhancing resilience?
The ICARUS project seeks to answer this – we believe that a better understanding and assessment of the balance between service levels, cost and benefits of measures is key for implementation of climate change resilience.
This project is a CEDR project funded through the Call 2021 Climate Change Resilience funded by Denmark, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
Climate Change Resilience
The CEDR Transnational Research Programme (TRP) operates through a series of annual transnational calls on topics that address the needs of European road authorities.
The Aim of the Climate Change Resilience programme to undertake research on integrating climate change into decision-making processes and implementing existing research into practice.
