Life Sustaining Infrastructure

In terms of sustainable development goals, life sustaining infrastructure adaptation aids both adaptation and reduction efforts as well as promotes the scientific development of strategies and measures applicable to adaptation. The two objectives of "reinforce life sustaining infrastructure-building capabilities" and "enhance life sustaining infrastructures' climate change adaptation capabilities" are set.

The first objective, "reinforce life sustaining infrastructure-building capabilities," comes with the two strategies of "consolidate flood prevention and management resilience and adaptation capabilities" and "reinforce public construction response capabilities." The strategies are supported by the two measures of "Operational Guidance for Implementing Flood Prevention and Management Resilience," and "Public Construction Anti-Flood Preparation Work Supervision."

The second objective, "enhance life sustaining infrastructures' climate change adaptation capabilities," comes with the strategy of "reinforce transportation system adaptation capabilities" and three measures of "reinforcing transportation system warning and response capabilities," "enhancing transportation system tolerance/resilience," and "improving transportation system decision support."

Life Sustaining Infrastructure

According to Article 19, Paragraph 4 of the "Climate Change Response Act," central industry competent authorities responsible for areas vulnerable to the impacts of climate change are to formulate adaptation action program performance reports yearly and submit them to the central competent authority, which shall report to the Executive Yuan for approval. Once approved, the reports shall be published.

Supporting government agencies of the life sustaining infrastructure adaptation action program shall submit priority action plan result or progress reports every year to the Ministry of Transportation, which shall consolidate them into an area performance report and submit it to the competent authority (MOENV) by the designated deadline. The MOENV shall consolidate the life sustaining infrastructure report with other areas' reports to produce the yearly performance report for national adaptation plans, which shall be reviewed, published, and submitted to the National Council for Sustainable Development for evaluation.

Supporting government agencies of the life sustaining infrastructure adaptation action program shall continuously track the status of individual adaptation action plans. Once a plan is completed, it shall be terminated and agencies shall completely review the adaptation strategies' emphasis and direction, add, remove, or revise proposed priority action plans, and regularly submit the aforementioned reports. The central competent authority (MOENV) shall convene an inter-ministerial negotiation every six months to discuss key issues, propose effective measures, and implement adaptation strategy monitoring and evaluation mechanisms to ensure adjustments are being made on a rolling basis.
