Climate Change and Earthquake Exposure in Asia and the Pacific: Assessment of Energy and Transport Infrastructure
Infrastructures across Asia and the Pacific face significant risks, with three-quarters of the assets exposed to four or more hazards.
Geolocating and undertaking a multi-hazard assessment of more than 30,000 infrastructure assets, this study analyzes the exposure of energy and transport assets in the region to climate change and earthquake hazards, and highlights how multi-hazard assessment can help strengthen the resilience of crucial infrastructure.
It notes that multi-hazard assessment and an understanding of the potential impacts of these hazards need to be systematically integrated into the planning, design, and financing of infrastructure upgrades and maintenance.
