Transportation Research Board Webinar – ACRP Research Report 188


Unclutter Your Processes – Simplifying Climate Risk Management at Airports

Presentation by Gresham Smith’s Lauren Seydewitz, ICF International’s Tommy Hendrickson and Cassandra Bhat, and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s Patti Clark

TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Research Report 188: Using Existing Airport Management Systems to Manage Climate Risk integrates current and projected climate change related risks into airport management systems and planning. The handbook identifies ways to reduce airport vulnerabilities to current and projected impacts of climate change, including extreme weather events. It also explores ways to minimize long-term costs to airport facilities and operations. The handbook also provides a detailed guide for integration, as well as a self-assessment tool for determining the applicable systems for climate-related decision-making within the airport. During this webinar, presenters will highlight the research that went into the guidebook and show participants how to put climate-related plans into action.
