Infrastructure Impacts

 Milton

Climate change is most often associated with living beings and weather events, but as more research is conducted on the topic, it is quite clear that the implications of changing climate are much farther reaching than that.  Long-term climate change trends will have an impact on communities and their infrastructure sustainability world wide. 

Climate change considerations need to be made for areas of infrastructure including:

  • Roads and railways
  • Water and waterways
  • Power generation and transmission
  • Airports and air travel
  • City planning
  • Coastal region destruction
  • Northern regions and
  • Permafrost degradation

Much more has yet to even begin being investigated.  Research in these areas is young, but will be highly influential for all levels of decision makers around the world.
