Figure 3 (above) shows some of the loops of interdependence across several infrastructures. The direct climatic impacts may include damage to productive capacity, whose stopgap repair can increase the future sensitivity to evolving climate change, or where resiliency-improving investments can insulate productive resources from future disruptions. The indirect impacts can be process changes in other industries or the diversification of supply chains. S. , computer hard drive manufacturing and precision component parts (note also implications of the Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster).
Through its impact on infrastructure and on the economic activity the infrastructure supports, climate change can transiently or permanently reduce regional economic output, and thereby reduce regional employment over what it would be otherwise. Due to Framing Climate Change Implications for Intrastructures and Urban Systems interdependencies of infrastructure systems, the reduction of output in one industry or the loss of one infrastructure can cause the reduction in the output in other industries or other infrastructures.
Implement early warning systems. NA NA Transport Reliable heating oil delivery. Lower transportation energy demand. Reduce emissions. Fewer road deaths. Expand public N/A transportation. Increase road network redundancy. River Flooding Dense development, more efficient energy use. If less flooding, If retreat, less spread of then benefit some transport. waterborne and related diseases. Flood proofing. Retreat. Increase recharge to reduce amount of surface runoff. If increased recharge, then reduced coastal flooding in estuaries.
