The free webinar “Tackling challenges for dam risk governance: safety management and climate change” took place on 17 May 2022. This webinar was organised by the Young Engineers Forum (YEF) of the International Committee on Large Dams (ICOLD).
The webinar was given by Adrian Morales Torres, who is Dr. in Civil Engineering by the Universitat Politècnica de València and the Technical Director and Partner of iPresas, in collaboration with Dr. Javier Fluixà Sanmartín.
The webinar lasted approximately one hour and a half, and among the topics discussed was climate change and how it can affect the way in which infrastructure safety is managed, an emerging issue of great importance today. Specifically, Adrián Morales and Javier Fluixà highlighted the importance of risk analysis to assess the impact of climate change on the safety of dams and how to use the results of this analysis to reach risk-informed decision making for the dams and propose different measures to adapt the infrastructure to climate change.
iPresas invites you to check out this interesting debate, which is available online.
