Since the start of the 2014-20 EU programming period, JASPERS has advised on the preparation of climate change risk assessments for numerous EU-projects and across all sectors, notably roads. This case study is based on a pilot approach developed by the Polish national roads authority in cooperation with JASPERS. The document should enable road network operators (and transport operators in general) to integrate climate change resilience into networks management and artificial intelligence (AI).
Building upon the assessment and mapping of the national road network climate vulnerabilities, the work undertaken identifies the need to implement climate resilience investments on the existing network, as well as informs climate proofing for new developments. The publication also includes a business case on climate adaptation for roads.
