“Together we will showcase what is available, make it accessible and connected, and support the shift to climate resilience throughout the infrastructure life cycle”
The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) is hosting the World Federation of Engineering Organizations’ (WFEO) Committee on Engineering and the Environment from 2019 to 2023. For this blog series, comissioned by ICE, committee members provide a snapshot of climate change impacts and solutions in their part of the world. To kick off, Professor Jianping Wu of Beijing’s Tsinghua University and his colleagues, Jing He and Xiaodong Guan, survey the scene in China.
On World Engineering Day for Sustainable Development, we explore the collaboration behind this day of action and look at how the engineering community is contributing to the global climate agenda with insights from Davide Stronati and Kancheepuram N Gunalan.
Resilience First are running a series of webinars throughout March on the role innovative technologies can play in decarbonisation across a range of different sectors. See the programme and the event report from this week’s event.
