Contents Notes
"Transportation Resilience: Adaptation to Climate Change and Extreme Weather Events summarizes a symposium held June 16--17, 2016 in Brussels, Belgium. Attendees of the 96th TRB Annual Meeting, January 8-12, 2017 in Washington, D.C. are invited to attend a special session summarizing this publication. The fourth annual symposium promotes common understanding, efficiencies, and trans-Atlantic cooperation within the international transportation research community while accelerating transport-sector innovation in the European Union (EU) and the United States. The two-day, invitation-only symposium brought together high-level experts to share their views on disruptions to the transportation system resulting from climate change and extreme weather events. With the goal of fostering trans-Atlantic collaboration in research and deployment, symposium participants discussed the technical, financial, and policy challenges to better plan, design, and operate the transportation network before, during, and after extreme and/or long-term climate events"--Publisher's description.
