Predicted climate change is making our land transport system more vulnerable. Our Society is dependent on a functional transport system. Impacts from adverse weather extremes on infrastructures can be counted in losses in business or property, and in well-being of individuals. Damages on the European land-infrastructure, has since 1980 increased with 64%, or 13 billion €, and is still increasing.There are indications that delays, and reroutes for third party might be higher than the direct cost for the disturbances.
My name is Monika Rydstedt Nyman I am a PhD candidate from Karlstad University.Monikas research focus is on learning and feedback in relations to natural hazards and the effect on the land transport system in Sweden.
Her aim is dual: To enhance resilient and to build back better, in the aftermaths of an adverse climate effects. Monika is one of the few researchers that connect organization theory, learning and climate change to build a more resilient society. Other researchers are looking at mitigating measurements. Some scholars are working with adaptive measurements in engineering, (operations and maintenance).
