Our strategic partners Resilience First have partnered with UN-Habitat and the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy (GCoM), on the upcoming Innovate4Cities (I4C) conference taking place on 11-15 October 2021. During the conference week, Resilience First will be hosting a discussion on decarbonisation and the role of technology. Following the recent publication of […]
Seth Schultz – “With the critical global actions on climate starting to accelerate, it is time too for all to urgently consider how they transform what they do, build more resilience, and contribute positively to a safe, sustainable and resilient future.”
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.
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.
With Australia’s climate having warmed by roughly 1.44°C since 1910, it is already feeling the effects of climate change. Dr Marlene Kanga looks at the impact of warming on this dry continent, how much of an appetite there is for decarbonisation, and what is being done already to combat climate change.
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”.
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.
