How to Manage the Risks Caused by Geohazards?

November 15, 2016

Geohazards are increasing across the globe due to climate change and increase the risk of long-term disruption to transport systems. A reliable and efficient transport system/network is a major catalyst for the development of a country and the backbone of its functioning.

Disruption to the transport system will cause economic setbacks and impact citizens’ security and access to critical infrastructure such as hospitals, schools, or shelters.

Therefore, a geohazard risk management perspective that incorporates people, environment, hydrology, geology, and the transportation infrastructure needs to be adopted for robust and resilient transport network.
