CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS – The Climate Resilient Infrastructure Report: A Focus on Technology

We are excited to announce a call for contributions to our third issue of the Climate Resilient Infrastructure (CRI) report. Issue 1, launched in May 2023, had a focus on implementation and featured case studies from across the globe. Issue 2 was launched at COP28 and took a closer look at the relationship between infrastructure and nature. You can read more about the series here.

Issue 3, A Focus on Technology, will showcase available roadmaps, tools and emerging digital technologies, as well as projects and initiatives that have incorporated them. The report will explore how digital technologies can enhance decision-making for climate resilience and adaptation throughout the lifecycle of infrastructure, for example, by modelling physical climate risks and impacts, providing an assessment of the condition of existing infrastructure, or supporting efficient and reliable decision-making, before, during and after hazard events.

We are seeking submissions from a range of sectors and geographies across three categories:

  • Project or solution case studies
    Featured case studies should elevate the agenda for resilience and adaptation across all infrastructure sectors and showcase best-practice examples of technology applications in infrastructure that build resilience and sustainability. Preference will be given to projects that have been built after September 2021, or that have started construction since September 2021, however, other projects will also be considered. Projects that fulfil the above timeline requirement would also be eligible for the Race to Resilience campaign and could be considered a contributor to the campaign through resilience outcomes.
  • Knowledge products and thought leadership
    We welcome submissions of tools, approaches, guidance, resources or knowledge transfer initiatives that can empower practitioners and local communities to embrace and harness technology to advance climate resilient, sustainable infrastructure solutions.
  • Collaborative initiatives
    We are seeking to feature initiatives that allow for diverse, collaborative contributions to problem solving. Featured initiatives should develop, harness or advance technology towards solutions that are holistic, transferable, and inclusive at their core.

 All submissions will be considered for inclusion in the CRI Report Issue 3 that will be launched at COP29. Multiple submissions from the same organisations are allowed but a different form needs to be completed for each one.
