This AASHTO-sponsored webinar included an overview of AASHTO’s mission in resilience and presentations on international resilience approaches and projects.
How do you create a resilient organization in the face of recurring extreme events? This webinar from the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development addressed “hurricane fatigue” and how they continue to build organizational resilience.
The transportation sector is the third most vulnerable sector to cyber-attacks. This webinar from Colorado DOT showed what DOTs should know and how they can be better prepared.
This webinar provides lessons learned from Hurricane Florence, a Category 4 storm that ripped through the Carolinas and caused severe flooding that was compounded by pre-existing ground saturation due to earlier summer floods. Presented by Leland Colvin, South Carolina Department of Transportation Deputy Secretary for Engineering.
Climate Change will directly impact our transportation system and already is impacting it in certain areas. We also need resilient systems to deal with upcoming impacts. We dive deep into Climate Change and Resilience issues, how problems can be mitigated in transportation planning, how the industry is impacted by issues, ways our systems can be upgraded in the near-term, and how we can plan for resilient systems in the future.
Here is a listing of state-by-state links to documents, powerpoints, and other information on state DOT climate change and energy activities. It includes reports, policies, plans, and research sponsored by the designated state DOT or part of a collaborative effort that involves the state DOT. It includes information on both greenhouse gas mitigation activities as well as climate adaptation activities.
