SUTP Module 5f – Adapting Urban Transport to Climate Change

Many transport decision-makers in developing countries are already confronted with extreme weather events, such as flooding, sea level rise and storms, all of which are expected to increase with climate change. In the worst case, transportation systems may not be able to recover between such events, resulting in exponential damages. This module is intended to raise awareness and describes the expected impacts of climate change on urban passenger transport as well as possible adaptation measures.
