Just as building designs are increasingly focused on resilient performance against the threats of climate change, so too is core public infrastructure adapting with increased risks of flooding, temperature extremes and freeze-thaw swings.

The National Research Council of Canada, alongside universities and other research bodies, have been undertaking research related to the effects of climate events on public infrastructure and transportation networks, including an examination of future-looking climate data and flooding, and is working to improve design guidelines to address the effects on bridges and roads.
