2022 OECD Infrastructure Forum

Session 4 - Breakout A: Adaptation – Making Infrastructure More Resilient over its Lifecycle

Oct 11, 2022 | 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM

Room CC9 - Plenary room


Ever more intensive climate related extreme events have increased the urgency to strengthen climate resilience in infrastructure. Governments have a crucial role to play in building infrastructure resilience by providing an enabling environment for relevant stakeholders to work together; standardising methodologies to take resilience failures into account across the lifecycle of an asset; providing access to climate risk information to identify likely exposure and the infrastructure vulnerabilities; and building awareness and communicating existing and future risks. This session will look at government efforts to build resilience, including setting the right incentives for investing in infrastructure resilience and for taking up insurance, where this is useful and efficient.
