Climate change causes increase in global temperature, different patterns of precipitation, and sea-level rise, which negatively
affect performance of infrastructure. Infrastructure needs to be adapted to the climate change through new design,
construction, or rehabilitation methods. For effective planning of infrastructure adaptation, before-and-after-adaptation
analysis is important to understand the impact of climate change on infrastructure. In the past ten years, the frequency of
natural disaster impacting urban area due to adverse effect of climate change has increased drastically due to flood and slope
failure causing live and damaged infrastructure. Adaptation to climate change is a complex process which can be characterized
as decision making under uncertainties. Climate hazard for the infrastructure can constitute socio-economic problems. They
can result in damage and destruction to residential and commercial properties and public infrastructures, endangering public
safety. The cost associated with the resilience of infrastructure can be quite expensive. The Green Infrastructure Technology
for Climate Change (GIT4CC) center aims to develop civil infrastructure adaptation technologies for climate changes based
on mid- and long-term predictions of climate changes. To develop the adaptation technologies in planning, design, and
maintenance of civil infrastructure, the GIT4CC center is composed of three major subjects; 1) Climate and hydrological
scenario creation for understanding the climate change impact on civil infrastructure, 2) Development of civil infrastructure
adaptation technologies based on climate scenarios and impact analyses, 3) Optimization of proactive adaptation strategies
using probabilistic evaluation. It is expected to guide decision making in prioritizing the most cost-effective adaptation
strategies for infrastructure.
