Adaptation Bleg

Most of the stuff I’ve read about adaptation to climate change involves sea walls and rerouting roads.

What I’d like to see is costings and timelines for retrofitting large cities, from rerouting sewers to jacking up buildings, from flood proofing metros and power sub stations to improving drainage.

Anyone know where I can look for this?

  1. Good area of review. Stern’s faux report may be good if you modified the discount rates to get realistic NPV.
    The question for me: Since all infrastructure has useful life times, why should there be any extraordinary costs at all to the adaptation of flood control and water management infrastructure to changes that will take place over many decades?
