Pathways to Disaster Resilient Infrastructure
Thursday, Dec 03, UTC 04:00 to 04:55
|Building resilience of new and existing infrastructure systems to climate and disaster risks is paramount to sustainable development. Identification and estimation of risk from various natural and man-made calamities is the first step in this direction. Over time, while hazard modelling has been successfully attempted at various scales, detailed infrastructure vulnerability modelling as an approach has not been explored enough. A very good understanding of the ‘’vulnerability of infrastructure to different hazard intensities’’ is a critical input for the development of governance and policy arrangements. It can be a catalyst in enabling the integration of disaster and climate resilience concepts in all infrastructure creation and maintenance.|
This community forum will highlight the role of vulnerability assessment as an effective approach in building infrastructure resilience. Further, it will also discuss the standard and emerging technologies that could be applied to infrastructure vulnerability assessment for assessing potential losses ex-ante and ex-post. Finally, the community will also discuss on how to apply the risk assessment outputs for increasing resilience.
We will use multiple approaches in the forum including presentations, group discussions (if platform supports organizing participants into smaller virtual rooms to work on a problem), games potentially in the form of puzzles, maze, etc.
