Resilience is a cross cutting element of the UN’s sustainable development goals – from access to clean water and energy to creating sustainable cities and communities.

WFEO climate stories: UK

The UK has commitments in place to reduce carbon emissions to 0% by 2050. However to achieve this, carbon reduction needs to be embedded in the planning, design and whole life of assets. Engineers have a key role to play in enabling this to happen by understanding how climate change affects their roles in terms of mitigation and adaptation. WFEO committee member Davide Stronati examines the climate change position in the UK.

Highlights from the #FASTRadaptation2021 event w/#GlobalClimateLeaders discussing practical action in adaptation⬇️ @LightsmithGroup @resilienceshift

The planet may be over 60% covered by seawater, but fresh #water is a precious resource. In fact 60% of the global population is projected to live in water-stressed areas by 2025. The @50LHome initiative is aiming to tackle this - here's how: https://www.resilienceshift.org/domestic-water-use-and-urban-water-resilience/
