Delivering sustainable and resilient infrastructure: Lessons from the world

Business & Professional

Join us for a discussion on globally important sustainable and resilient infrastructure practice.

Delivering sustainable and climate change resilient infrastructure: Lessons from the world

Dr Juliet Mian and Pasquale Capizzi from Arup join us for the first event in our sustainable infrastructure lecture series.

According to the UN over 60% of the land projected to become urban by 2030 is yet to be built, mostly in South-East Asia and Africa.

Development will likely test planning and design capacities, while climate change will compound risk and affect ecosystem services at an unprecedented scale.

Juliet Mian (Arup Associate Director, Technical Director of The Resilience Shift) and Pasquale Capizzi (Arup Associate, Lead of Climate Resilience, Arup International Development) will present practices from around the world in sustainable and resilient infrastructure (Kenya, Myanmar, China, Mexico, Mozambique, Japan, South-Africa, the US and Europe) and attempt to draw lessons for replication.

The lecture will begin at 18:30 and will be followed by a networking reception from 19:30. Please note that places for this event are limited and seating will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
