An Introduction to Climate Change Through Codes, Standards, and Regulations

February 9, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm UTC-5

Codes, standards, and regulations are changing in response to and in anticipation of climate change. Organizations across the world are updating existing standards or writing new ones to help engineers, construction workers, healthcare workers, and many others to prepare society for extreme weather and changing climate conditions. The intention of this introductory session is to provide practitioners with a general understanding of this topic and directions as to where to go for further detailed knowledge. 

In this introductory session, we will address these infrastructure types:

  • Buildings – e.g. energy codes, flood risk, snow loads
  • Transportation Vehicles & fuels – biodiesel, charging systems 
  • Transportation Infrastructure – e.g. asphalt codes, bridges
  • Water, Wastewater, and Water source management – e.g. natural flood mitigation, dikes and water diversion, drainage
  • Utilities (Electrical & Natural Gas) – e.g. flood and drought
