Abstract

Resilient Buildings present a significant amount of opportunity for climate mitigation. Since they are long-lived assets, they also present great challenges for adaptation to projected as well as unexpected climate change impacts. These impacts will have consequences for building design and fabric, as well as for people in and around buildings and for their health and well-being. It is essential that we identify the nature and extent of their vulnerabilities and resilience if they are to be adapted in a timely and effective manner. There are many assessment tools and methods being developed and used for identifying vulnerability and adaptive capacity of Buildings. However, there appears to be a knowledge and policy gap in the area of assessment of buildings in particular measuring their vulnerability and aiding in creating climate-adaptable and resilient buildings. This paper aims to examine the potential climate change effects on buildings and identify knowledge and Strategies for climate-adaptable buildings. Based on literature analysis, it provides a framework for the design and interventions for climate-adaptable buildings in terms of resilience.

Keywords: Resilient buildings, Climate Change Adaptation, Building adaptability, design Strategies, interventions
