ICSI publishes features on particular topics related to our work.
Guidance, tools and standards play a key role in the development of sustainable and resilient infrastructure. Savina Carluccio looks back, there is a golden thread that runs through several pieces of work and leads to our work on climate resilient Infrastructure Pathways and resilience indicators which will be launching later this year for COP26.
Lessons learned from two different crises – severe winter storm, and wildfires – both involving many impacts and major power outages, show strong parallels.
Our friends at WSP tell us about a project that uses nature-based solutions to stabilize the shoreline in Apalachicola Bay, Florida USA, and how it fits in with the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.
WSP engineers Tanu Kaur and Matt Lyon examine ways the Australian water industry can reach carbon net-zero. They look at the current situtation, policies and strategies that could be adopted, and the barriers that need to be overcome.
Seizing opportunities to reduce carbon emissions through material choices and approaches that support environmental sustainability. Bridge engineers Daniel Ekström and Johan Lindersson discuss opportunities to reduce carbon emissions associated with bridges.
ICSI Board member, Tom Lewis, contributed to discussions on infrastructure stimulus legislation, and is leading a new focus on climate, resilience and sustainability at WSP.
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.
