Geohazard risk monitoring and mitigation approaches: Increasing resilience of the Himalayan road network
Climate change is leading to a more extreme environment and increasing the recurrence rate of natural hazards, making infrastructures subject to actions to which they had not necessarily been designed for. Risk estimation and mitigation measures deriving from climate change are creating new concepts that are being incorporated into the different infrastructure departments policies, resulting…
The Resilience Shift proposes to host an open meeting that brings together the different industrial and academic programmes who are focused on improving the resilience of critical infrastructure. The aim of the meeting is to strengthen the networks between these respective industrial and academic programs.
Small island developing states (SIDS) are the most exposed to disasters and the impacts of a changing climate. Innovating to address these issues is therefore a necessity for their survival.
Over the past 10 years, countries and territories have made strategic advancements combining cutting edge technology and innovative financing strategies with human centric solutions.
Accelerating a shift in urban water resilience: Influencing policy, shaping practice and sharing learning
The Resilience Shift (RS) (www.resilienceshift.org), supported by Lloyd’s Register Foundation and Arup, is working to make resilience tangible, practical and relevant. Currently focusing on the urban water sector, we are proposing a side event that will consider urban water systems through the lens of resilience.
