Description
The scientific community overwhelmingly agrees that global warming and changing climate patterns will become more disruptive and have detrimental impacts on essential sectors of our society. These changes, such as extreme weather events, rising temperatures, flooding and droughts, all significantly impact our infrastructure. We are faced with simultaneous threats of aging infrastructure, damage from a changing climate, lack of funding and political paralysis. So how do we respond? Looking around the world, who is taking action now and leading innovations on tackling the challenges of creating sustainable infrastructure systems? The aim of this course is to present a snapshot of this complex dilemma.
