Climate change and its impacts are creating uncertainties and challenges. To meet this challenge, new design philosophies for climate-safe infrastructure and reliable expertise for managing the risks of climate change are needed. Climate Change and the Built Environment is intended as a resource for design professionals, owners, planners, contractors, and other industry stakeholders. It provides practical guidance and vital industry information, including design strategies for mitigation and adaptation, new project approaches, contracting practices, risk management, and insurance insights, and it lays out a path forward to address climate change through best practices. Readers will also find case studies that offer illustrative examples and recommendations for making projects more resilient and for protecting infrastructure assets. Solving for climate change will require a diversity of voices and perspectives. As design professionals, we have a special role to play in re-establishing a balance between the natural and built environments. This book represents a proactive collaboration of women across the design industry and is reflective of the type of engagement which will be needed to solve for this challenge.
