Opportunities for Risk-Based Asset Management in Flood Resilience

This presentation focuses on asset vulnerability in the wake of floods. The presentation examines the vulnerability assessment scoring tool (VAST) based off of the Post Event Assessment of Resilience (PEAR) developed by the US DOT to determine which asset are at risk due to climate vulnerabilities. Using this tool DOTs are able to estimate their exposure and sensitivity, however the system can still be improved.
