Javier Fluixa - Dam safety management under the influence of climate change effects

RBD | IAHR | Javier Fluixa

Video Introduction:

Dams and protective dikes are critical infrastructures whose failure has high economic and social consequences. Risk assessment approaches and decision-making strategies have traditionally assumed the stationarity of climatic conditions. However, climate change is expected to have a major impact on dam safety, leading to potential damaging impacts in terms of economic, social and environmental costs. Owners and operators of dams must adapt their mid- and long-term management and adaptation strategies to new climate scenarios. A comprehensive time-dependent approach is proposed to incorporate climate change impacts in dam safety management and decision-making support. The goal is to design adaptation strategies that incorporate the non-stationarity of future risks as well as the uncertainties associated with new climate scenarios.
