The IPCC and the EPA report that climate change impacts are now unavoidable. This presents a challenge to building asset planners, designers and owners. Buildings are dependent on reliable high quality services, including, energy, water and electricity supply, and the economic and social costs that the failure of these services could cause are higher than at any time in the past. Extreme climate-related events can also cause major losses, and the changing global climate has seen an increase in the occurrences of these risks. Until now, policy makers and professionals have focused primarily on adaptation and mitigation strategies to reduce greenhouse emissions from building stock. In addition to this essential process, the next step is to understand the risks to building stock that could emerge from climate change, and develop strateges to cope with this. This is the first book to address the full spectrum of climate change related threats to the built environment, including the physical risks due to flooding and fire, new challenges for facilities managers, risks to property investors, and reputational risks to building designers. In addition to an in-depth study of the threats posed by these new risks, the author investigates the assessment and governance of, and costing for climate change risk. This ground-breaking book is essential reading for anyone interested in climate change risks or disaster management, in addition to those wanting to understand the future of property development, facilities management, or building more
