ICSI Board member, Tom Lewis, contributed to discussions on infrastructure stimulus legislation, and is leading a new focus on climate, resilience and sustainability at WSP.
How do you measure resilience? The Resilience Shift talks to resilience pioneer, Dr Murali Chandrashekaran, about why people do the things they do, and the need for a human-centred approach to resilience – along with solid data to support it.
The call to action is clear, but how do you make change happen? Peter Hall is one of those helping to reshape Wood as it evolves further towards embedding sustainability and resilience across everything it does. He tells us about the journey so far.
Professor Paul Jowitt shares his reflections on what makes an engineer today, why ‘lessons learned’ about failure don’t seem to be, and how systems thinking is fundamental to resilience.
The multiple drivers of change currently facing ports require a whole-systems approach before low-carbon, resilient ports transformations can be realised says a new report from The Resilience Shift. “This is the right time to catalyse the urgent action that needs to be taken by the whole ports-value chain to transform ports into low-carbon, resilient gateways”.
“Together we will showcase what is available, make it accessible and connected, and support the shift to climate resilience throughout the infrastructure life cycle”
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.
At 12.51 p.m. on Tuesday 22 February 2011, a shallow, 6.3 magnitude quake occurred just 10 kilometres from the centre of Christchurch. What is the learning from this event looking back, and what are its implications for building resilience to future events and uncertainties?
