What makes urban infrastructure resilient to weather and climate change?


Glasgow Caledonian University | What makes urban infrastructure resilient to weather and climate change?

Urban infrastructure supports life in our cities and is under stress. The hard and soft engineering interventions we implement to address its resilience will intimately shape our society and our environment for decades to come. Here we showcase transdisciplinary thinking and leadership around what makes resilient, sustainable and just interventions in urban areas that benefit people and planet. The event showcases practical methodologies to support resilient infrastructure decision-making, with issues contextualised through global case studies on hard engineering, finance, participation, risk and governance, fostering the role of cities as champions for well-being – human and environmental.
