On 3 Nov 2021, the International Coalition for Sustainable Infrastructure (ICSI), of which The Resilience Shift is a Founding Member, hosted a roundtable discussion at the COP26 Wood House in Glasgow. The discussion focussed on issues at the heart of ICSI, and the engineering community’s role in bridging the gaps on climate, sustainability, and resilience for infrastructure. The event brought together key stakeholders in the sector, including ICSI’s Board members, and invited members of the public to join us in exploring the topic at hand.
As the Resilience Realized awards programme opens for entries, we’re excited to introduce the esteemed panel of judges that will be reviewing the submitted work.
Ann Allen, CEO of the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (CICES), hosted a screening of the first Resilience Engineered episode for CICES members. She shares reflections on the episode with us and highlights key points that were discussed among members following the screening.
Entries are open for the Resilience Realized Awards, a new collaboration between Wood and The Resilience Shift that will give recognition to projects around the world that are at the cutting edge of resilience and have demonstrated a comprehensive and thoughtful approach to building resilience in communities.
The Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI) hosted a session on ‘Pioneering Nature-based Solutions (NbS) for Resilient Infrastructure’ at the Resilience Hub at COP26. The session discussed key learnings from case studies around the world and also marked the release of a white paper on Governance of Infrastructure for Resilience, developed by CDRI and The Resilience Shift, in partnership with Arup.
