About the event

Hosted by David Smith, senior vice president, director of strategy at Stantec and co-chair of the ICE Sustainable Resilient Infrastructure Community Advisory Board, the event will highlight the importance of climate equity and support for cities in emerging economies.  From the T-MEC rail corridor, which connects Mexico’s Pacific coastal port of Mazatlán to Winnipeg in Canada, to the Anillo Vial Periférico highway development in Lima, Peru, the Americas are currently experiencing a renaissance in infrastructure projects.  The United States’ Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which sets aside $550 billion in new spending to overhaul the country’s infrastructure, is a further illustration of radical development across the region.  The pursuit of climate resilience and adaptation is often separated from the net-zero agenda. However, alongside global efforts towards green energy and decarbonisation, there is an opportunity to embed resilience within new infrastructure projects, as well as to combine mitigation and adaptation more effectively.

Join us as we explore subjects including:

  • quantifying and understanding risk.
  • modular construction and the idea of circularity to support progress to net zero.
  • overcoming the challenges of investment in green technologies and infrastructure.

We will also identify how engineers can support positive change by influencing policy, improving communication, and cooperating across regions to share knowledge.

Full details of this free lecture are available on the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) website.
