“Pathways to Resilient Communities” Clearinghouse of Technical Resources

Decision-makers looking to protect communities against natural and manmade disasters

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) released a new online toolkit, Pathways to Resilient Communities. This clearinghouse of available technical tools and resources is designed for community leaders looking to improve the built environment’s ability to respond to increasingly severe storms and other threats to vertical and horizontal infrastructure.

The toolkit summarizes the difference between codes, standards, and manuals of practice, and denotes where local leaders can take action to ensure the resources are implemented. The resource also features ASCE’s hazard-specific standards for threats to the built environment by region, including flooding, earthquakes, wind, hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis, and winter weather.

“Civil engineers are trusted to protect the safety and health of the public through the construction and maintenance of infrastructure systems people rely on every day,” said Maria Lehman, ASCE President. “This new toolkit will help decision-makers understand why modern codes and standards matter when improving current infrastructure and building for a more resilient future.”

About ClimaTwin®

ClimaTwin® is a leading climate risk intelligence solution for infrastructure assets and the built environment.

We empower infrastructure stakeholders to mitigate climate risks and assess adaptation actions across the total asset lifecycle. By connecting complex climate models and infrastructure digital twins, our solution enables engineers, owner-operators, and governments to aggregate, visualize, and analyze disparate datasets, revealing site-specific insights at a hyper-local scale. Benefits include 5-10x near-term returns and lifetime cost-avoidance by mitigating risks to systems, services, and societies.

Leveraging Sustainable Infrastructure for Resilient Communities

Leveraging Sustainable Infrastructure for Resilient Communities features selected papers from the International Conference on Sustainable Infrastructure 2021, sponsored by the Committee on Sustainability of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). The collection contains 13 peer-reviewed papers on best practices in sustainability. Some of the many topics include: sustainable water supplies; residential land development and urban planning; flood risk reduction and coastal protection; energy production and transmission; and, infrastructure technologies. Further, the collection is of interest to engineers, researchers, and public policy officials engaged in the development, delivery, and operation of public infrastructure. Leveraging Sustainable Infrastructure for Resilient Communities is edited by Michael F. Bloom, P.E., ENV SP; and, Krishna R. Reddy, Ph.D., P.E., ENV SP (ISBN (PDF): 9780784483879). ClimaTwin™ is a proud member of the American Society of Civil Engineers.
