Abstract

The paper discusses the impact of climate change (floods) on the FBiH railway network. The methodology for analysing the impact of 200-year and 500-year floods on the railway network has been developed. The parts of the railway infra-structure exposed to the risk of floods have been identified based on geospatial data and QGIS software tools. The risk of railway damage was determined for each section at risk, using defined flood-risk thresholds. Finally, the risk map was developed as a result of the analysis. The paper also describes possible damage and appropriate rail protection measures: preventive protection measures, flood protection measures, and rehabilitation measures.
