BOSTON, MA, July 4, 2022 — ClimaTwin™, Climate Risk Analysis for Infrastructure Digital Twins™, is proud to participate in the International Coalition for Sustainable Infrastructure (ICSI) Summit on June 28, 2002, organized by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE). The virtual summit centers around “…ways to drive the transformative change needed to deliver people-centered, sustainable, and resilient infrastructure that is fit for all our communities and the Earth.”
Recent reports by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) highlight that the timeframe for addressing climate change is now, and mission critical over the next eight years. IPCC is an intergovernmental body of the United Nations responsible for advancing knowledge on human-induced climate change. As the frequency and severity of extreme weather increases as a result of climate change, engineering sustainable and resilient infrastructure is imperative.
During the International Coalition for Sustainable Infrastructure Summit, global experts, such as Richard Threlfall, Chair of the ICSI, and Ellen Lindsey Awuku, Vice President of International Falcon Movement-Socialist Education International, discuss a broad spectrum of topics — innovative finance, climate resilience and adaptation, and new guidance and standards for sustainable and resilient infrastructure. Further, ICSI presents plans and priorities to act on climate change, sustainability, and resilience.
