This is Webinar 3 in the Webinar Series: Urban resilience. Facing global crisis at the time of pandemic: https://www.sdu.dk/en/om_sdu/institutter_centre/sducivilengineering/iura/teaching+and+education+activities/webinar+series
Delivering adequate infrastructure solutions implies an understanding of urban needs today and predicting what might be needed, and what we might be challenged with in the future. Defining ’adequate’ should rely on a clear appreciation of the extent of future disturbances we account for, the level of standards we build to, and the environmental, social and economic factors we include.
In this webinar, we discuss the benefits of resilient infrastructure standards, the opportunities offered by radical infrastructure alternatives such as nature based solutions (NBS), and the need to reassess the role of critical infrastructure and interdependence between infrastructure sectors, in order to prepare and respond fast in moments of crises.
