Resilient Infrastructure

There is an equal need to build infrastructure that is more resilient and can withstand the increasing frequency of these events. For example, in the immediate aftermath of a climate event, emergency operations are often hampered by a lack of resilient infrastructure.

Specific areas:

    • Remote and smart monitoring of transport infrastructure health, e.g., sensors, drones, CCTV
    • Climate-resilient roads, bioengineering, slope stabilization structures, side drainage and cross drainage structures, super-elevation
    • Climate-resilient roofing, irrigation systems, bridges (site, elevation, abutment & reinforcement), perforated surface for surface water management in built environments
    • Climate- and disaster-resilient infrastructure design practices
