Actually, research in civil and structural engineering needs more worldwide collaboration to find solutions for many challenges related to climate change. Particularly, efforts must be focused on the development of modern design codes based on reliability concepts, calibrated from quantitative risk analysis for adapting to, and mitigating the impacts of natural disasters such as storms, sever earthquakes, strong winds …etc. These codes are the basis for engineering design and play an important role in decision making about the performance of structures over their working life.
