A Review of the Landscape of Guidance, Tools and Standards for Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure​

July 2021

Guidance, tools and standards play a key role in the development of sustainable and resilient infrastructure. Stakeholders across the infrastructure lifecycle need them to better plan, finance, design, deliver, and operate and maintain their infrastructure assets and systems.

This paper set out to understand what resources already exist and where key gaps are, how what exists can be better utilised or promoted, and what actions should be taken to close the identified gaps. The catalogue of existing guidance, tools and standards for sustainable and resilient infrastructure used for the landscape analysis was crowdsourced from ICSI members.

This paper is an output of the Guidance, Tools and Standards Action Track and serves as a foundational resource for future work undertaken by ICSI.
