Adapting mobility systems to climate change – 9 November

Storms, extreme temperatures, flooding… these phenomena are certainly putting infrastructure, transport systems and organisation to the test – storm Aurora, which hit Europe in October, being a stark reminder of this reality.

What kind of climate future will we be facing by 2050? What are the challenges for mobility? What progress have we made in tackling this issue? What approach should be adopted to help companies in the sector adapt to climate change?

Come and discuss (in French) this topic with us, Futura-Mobility, the innovation and prospective think tank for the mobility industry, on 9 November (in person only) at atelier Kappa.

Come and discuss (in French) this topic with us, Futura-Mobility, the innovation and prospective think tank for the mobility industry, on 9 November (in person only) ) at atelier Kappa.

Programme – presentations followed by discussions:
  • Frédéric Long from Météo France, climatologist from the weather services department, on climate developments in 2040-2050,
  • Marie Colin from CEREMA, technical resilience officer for infrastructure and adapting to climate change, on the challenges and a methodology support  illustrated with examples,
  • Vivian Dépoues from Institut for Cimate Economics (I4CE), adaptation project lead, on the impact of climate change on transport systems, and an overview of uptake of this challenge in France and worldwide,
  • Emmanuel Mroz from SNCF, assistant director for the energy transition and carbon neutrality, for a discussion about taking adaptation into account within Group SNCF.

And to wrap up with a ‘sidestep’: meeting with Victor Breban, co-founder of Noil, a start-up giving combustion engine scooters a second electric life!
