ICSI is the global movement for engineering action

ICSI is the voice of the engineering community on infrastructure sustainability, resilience and climate action.

ICSI places engineers to be at the forefront of climate action, harnessing their ability to provide solutions and matching it with urgently needed demand. The solutions we develop and promote will deliver impact “on the ground” where it is needed most.

Why we need to mobilize the engineering community


Engineers have a crucial role to play in responding to the climate crisis

They hold the technical expertise needed to drive solutions and implement action.

Engineers are widely trusted by the public

The engineering community is well positioned to make an impact beyond their own industry, to influence policy and planning, and to become leaders on climate action.

Engineering challenges are disproportionately spread across the globe

Infrastructure needs are rising, particularly in regions with growing urbanization, and in places where climate impacts are putting pressure on existing infrastructure.

There is an imbalance of science and engineering capacity across geographies

We are missing engineers in regions where they are most needed. As the infrastructure requirements increase, so too does the need for engineers and infrastructure specialists in these regions. For instance, 10 million engineers are needed in Africa alone in the next 30 years in order stay within the 1.5˚c goal.
