Today’s infrastructure systems face unprecedented challenges. Probably more than ever before, they are set up against a systemic and dynamic set of risks, including environmental, technological, cyber, geopolitical, financial, and others. This already complex risk environment is exacerbated by climate change, which brings new hazards, stressors, and constraints.
The Engineering Leadership Group (ELG) is a joint initiative of Resilience First and the International Coalition for Sustainable Infrastructure, members of the Resilience Rising Consortium. It delivers an informed and much-needed voice to drive impact and influence policy decisions and investment priorities. Capturing the voice of global engineering-inclusive organisations committed to advancing infrastructure sustainability, resilience and climate action through global advocacy and targeting the most critical international decision-making bodies considering the future of the built and natural environment.
In this second convening of the ELG, on Tuesday 14 March, 10.30am – 12.00pm, in Cannes (walking distance from the Palais des Festivals et Congres), the group invites members and senior leaders from key stakeholder organisations to join a roundtable on advancing resilient, sustainable and inclusive infrastructure futures.
This session, co-hosted by ICSI, Resilience First and Arup, will present the ELG Manifesto, followed by a discussion on the key challenges laying ahead, including future engineering capacity needs, to define the ELG priorities for 2023.
This will be an invitation-only gathering to learn, share experiences, network, review new trends, and discuss best practices.
