Adaptation du cadre bâti aux conditions climatiques actuelles et futures : le cas des canicules

Abstract : The built environment (buildings and connecting [transport, energy, water, etc.] networks) is essential to the functioning of human groups. It is by nature vulnerable to random climatic events. Although deemed relevant to current climatic conditions, the capacity of the built environment to face altered climatic hazards (intensity, frequency, duration) has to be investigated in the perspective of climate change. Based on an analysis of the current situation regarding the prevention of damage to people and property consecutively to climate-induced hazards, this report explores opportunities created by a change of these hazards. A chapter is devoted to the heat wave because of its consequences in the cities, which now account for the majority of the population. Suggestions for actions contributing to adapt the built environment to climate change close this report.
