We are beginning to feel the impact of climate change despite action being taken to mitigate climate change through net-zero and low carbon initiatives. In the UK climate change is causing more frequent and more extreme weather events. These adverse conditions are affecting the reliability and safety of our transport systems and can have significant costs. We can improve the resilience (resistance, robustness, reliability or recovery) of our transport infrastructure to extreme weather through taking action to adapt to climate change by modifying and improving transport systems. Technological innovations and enhancement schemes can be used to adapt infrastructure. However, fundamental to an increase in the transport industry 19s capacity to adapt to climate change is improving the knowledge and skills of its workforce. This project is working to support the development of the transport industry 19s adaptive capacity through education and training. As part of the first phase of work, this research undertook a survey of transport industry professionals to identify the knowledge, skills and training needs of the transport industry. The outputs of this survey will inform the next phases of this project to develop climate change adaptation training materials for transport industry professionals.
