EU-INTACT case studies: impact of extreme weather on critical infrastructure (2016)

Description

This paper describes the outcomes of the EU - INTACT case studies and was presented on the 3rd European Conference on Flood Risk Management. This paper describes the impacts of climate related extreme events on critical infrastructure, such as energy systems. Although these events in itself have a large impact on society, their societal and economic impact is expected to exacerbate when critical infrastructure is destroyed. In the INTACT project, an approach is developed to increase the resilience of critical infrastructure that consists out of the following steps:

  • assess regionally differentiated risks
  • identify and classify critical infrastructure and assess resilience of the critical infrastructure
  • indicate the set of potential measures and technologies.

 

The paper describes the approach on the case of the Rotterdam port.
