The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) acknowledges the challenges the region faces and is developing a set of publications, guidelines and tools to increase knowledge of the vulnerability of transport infrastructure. The objective of this document is to disseminate the methods used by IDB to develop climate change projections based on key vulnerability assessment maps for 26 countries in LAC. Realistic Greenhouse gas emissions scenarios were used to develop different sets of climate projections (precipitation, temperature and sea level rise) and their potential impact on the transport sector.
