How do you get people talking about resilience, risk and uncertainty? What are they, why do they matter, and what must we do about them? Our film series, Resilience Engineered, is now freely available to watch, download, and use in teaching or team discussions.
The findings in the latest IPCC report once again highlight the urgency for action to reach net zero as soon as possible, and make a step-change to build the resilience of the global economy. We share a response from the High-Level Climate Champions.
The latest volume from the IPCC’s Sixth Assessment Report is on Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability. The Resilience Shift is part of a collaboration to co-create a Summary for Urban Policymakers series that will present the latest IPCC assessments in targeted summaries that can help inform action at the city scale.
Involving the community, as in Oceanside, California, is key to co-developing long-term resilience for coastal cities battling to save their beaches from rising sea levels and erosion.
Speaking at the closing lecture, Seth Schultz admitted that he had previously been sceptical that the engineering community was willing to make changes in order to deal with the climate emergency. But the profession has shown that it is, and this response was consistent around the world, and from very senior or retired engineers, right down to new graduates.
