Part 2: Design Strategies for Climate Resilience

Climate Change design for extreme events

Through part one of this book, the reader should have gained a familiarity with climate zones and gained the knowledge to foresee different extreme weather and climate events that need to be designed for if climate resilience is to be attained. Part two of this book looks at four major effects of climate change and some design strategies and examples of projects that are addressing those effects. The effects examined are:

  1. Drought, Heat, and Erratic Rainfall
  2. Wildfire
  3. Tropical Cyclone Effects
  4. Sea Level Rise and Flooding

For each climatic effect, we will examine five topics: threat summary, extreme event survival, site mitigation plan, regional mitigation, and recovery.
