Transportation Resilience 2023: International Conference on Extreme Weather and Climate Change Challenges

Transportation Research Board

November 13 - 15, 2023

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM


National Academy of Sciences Building , N.W.


2101 Constitution Avenue, Washington, DC



National conference on addressing transportation and climate change

Transportation Resilience 2023 will involve panels, presentations, roundtable discussions and poster sessions, some with interactive audience survey responses.  Although currently envisioned as solely an in-person offering, some form of hybrid sessions will be given due consideration.

The target audience includes transportation practitioners, researchers, educators, consultants, government agencies, businesses, advocacy groups and other stakeholders from around the world. Participation from local, tribal, state, national, and international perspectives are welcome and encouraged.

Conference Objectives

  • Develop common understandings of transportation resilience concepts and state of practice
  • Share approaches for integrating climate resilience into agency processes, design standards, and standards of practice
  • Learn new methods for prioritizing and evaluating performance of resilience investments
  • Discuss transportation resilience funding and financing challenges and opportunities
  • Discover successful approaches for meaningful community engagement around transportation resilience
  • Develop an international peer learning network to exchange ideas

Transportation Resilience 2023 will provide attendees with information on emerging best practices and state of the art research results on how to adapt transportation networks to the potential impacts of climate change and extreme weather events. The focus includes vulnerability and resilience to climate change and extreme weather events impacting all modes of transportation, including pedestrian, active mobility (bicycle/scooter), automobile, rail, transit, aviation and pipeline facilities and critical infrastructure. Efforts to integrate resilience in all aspects of the transportation sector will be addressed, including design, engineering, planning, asset management, operations, maintenance, emergency management and communications.

Importantly, Transportation Resilience 2023 represents a unique opportunity for exchanging ideas and learning more about the latest transportation resilience concepts and applications. Additionally, it will promote national and international dialogue on research, implementation and lessons learned, with benefits that are expected to extend beyond the transportation sector. Importantly, the range of best practices to be explored and shared during the meeting will be inclusive of resilience approaches that utilize change management, stakeholder communication and innovative financing, to complement traditional engineering/hardening solutions.
