Implementation Lab at COP27: Engineering the vision for climate-resilient transport

November 2022

Transport infrastructure systems play a pivotal role in supporting society through provision of essential connectivity services to end-users, alongside enabling economic growth. To be able to deal with an increasingly complex and interconnected world and uncertain future, transport systems need to be more sustainable and resilient.

The COP27 Transport Implementation Lab, hosted by ICSI in Sharm El-Sheikh, explored how transport infrastructure can be made resilient to climate hazards through the adoption of new technology, design, and materials.

The event saw input from twenty-two organisations such as Airports Council International Europe, the International Union of Railways, World Road Association, Ethio-Djibouti Railways, the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI) and many more.

Participants were encouraged to share written case studies of climate-resilient transport solutions to accelerate collaboration and knowledge-sharing. Alongside an analysis of the event, these case studies have been collated in this publication.
