Colombia's primary road network in the face of climate change: Climate risk study for Colombia's primary road network on a national level

As one of the first activities proposed in the VIAS-CC plan, this document was created to analyze the risk associated with the vulnerability of the Colombia's primary road network in the face of today's climate and the climate change scenarios projected for 2040. Thus, with a multi-criteria and multidimensional methodology based on the models of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, an analysis was developed of more than 16,000 km of roads divided into 306 sections, selecting 20 indicators that explain risk based on vulnerability, exposure and threat.
