About this Event

In partnership with the #RacetoResilience campaign, this event will discuss benefits and challenges of leveraging technology and data to enhance evidence-based decision-making for climate action, with a focus on solutions that can be rapidly scaled across multiple sectors to support delivery of the Sharm El Sheik Adaptation Agenda as well as net-zero targets.

Technological advancements – including AI and digital twins – can be harnessed to better address climate change and improve the resilience and sustainability of infrastructure. Policymakers and practitioners can use technologies to enhance climate adaptation and mitigation efforts and decision-making for resilience throughout the infrastructure lifecycle, e.g. by modeling climate risks on infrastructure and communities, assessing the condition of existing infrastructure, enhancing efficiency, safety and reliability, before, during and after hazard events.

Convened by the International Coalition for Sustainable Infrastructure (ICSI) and co-hosted by the Climate Champions Team and the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) we will bring together city leaders, engineers, and tech experts to explore opportunities for harnessing data and technology for climate action and explore how innovative technology applications in urban infrastructure can build resilience and sustainability, with a focus on solutions that are holistic, transferable, and inclusive at their core.
