Savina Carluccio, Head of Guidance, Tools and Standards at The Resilience Shift, moderated a discussion on urban opportunities for South Africa as part of Africa Cities and Built Environment Day.
We were thrilled to be involved in a number of events this week for London Climate Action Week, providing expert insight on panel discussions, and showcasing one of our own initiatives.
Resilience First, in partnership with Intel, have published a whitepaper on ‘Decarbonisation and the role of technology’, outlining how technology and innovation can be harnessed to cut emissions and accelerate the path to net-zero.
As part of the ‘Triennial’ event ‘Planning for Climate Change and the Enhanced Resilience of Civil Infrastructure’ a collaboration by civil engineering organisations ICE, ASCE and CSCE, our own Seth Schultz will be taking part in a debate on delivering net carbon zero, and the role of the engineering community on Tuesday 25th May.
Two members of The Resilience Shift team are joining the UN’s Climate Champions’ team on secondment. They’ll be supporting The Race to Resilience, the global campaign taking place alongside the Race to Zero
The WFEO Climate Stories series is a collection of blogs written by WFEO committee members about climate change in six countries from around the world: Australian, Canada, China, France, Kenya and the UK. The blogs looked at how climate change is affecting each country, attitudes to climate change, what is being done to reduce carbon emissions, and the role engineers can play. Here Davide Stronati assesses what we can learn from the series.
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.
Kenya has experienced an increase in droughts and floods in the last few years due to the effects of climate change. WFEO Engineering and the Environment committee member Christine Adongo Ogut looks at how climate change is affecting Kenya, and what is being done to reduce carbon emissions in the latest WFEO climate stories blog curated by ICE.
