This workshop provided an opportunity for scientists, economists and engineers to discuss state-of-the-art modelling in change and adaptation. As infrastructure ages, is vital that climate-related hazards and demographic change are taken into account when replacing or updating systems and assets.
Opportunities for knowledge exchange and sharing best modelling practices were combined with time to identify gaps in knowledge and tools.
Guest speakers included Pascal Perez from the SMART Infrastructure facility in Wollongong, Australia.
