ABSTRACT

All infrastructures are crucial for the well-being of citizens and the functioning of the economy, transport, electricity networks, water supply, sewers, buildings, telecommunications and dykes. As their name suggests, they structure the territories and irrigate the economy.
Climate change will have an impact on the adaptation of existing structures and especially on the renewal of networks and the design of future structures.
Anticipating, finding new technical but also economic and organizational solutions, informing and training the decision-makers are all subjects to be explored now with regard to future climatic and meteorological changes.
By sharing views and disciplines, it is a question of working to the resilience of the infrastructures, and to the installation of equipment and processes adapted and therefore less sensitive to the climatic stresses.
The purpose of this symposium is to bring together researchers in meteorology, climate science and social sciences, as well as planning experts and policy makers to discuss challenges, needs and examples of solutions and collaborations in response to these issues.
