ASCE Nigeria stages annual conference around Future World Vision
ASCE India holds climate-oriented conference connected to G20
Security around New Delhi for the G20 summit of global leaders in early September was so tight it forced a change of venue for ASCE India’s related Conference on Climate- and Disaster-Resilient Infrastructure. Originally to be held in person, the one-day event saw participants convene via Zoom, and the agenda was held largely as planned with key infrastructure stakeholders in planning, finance, design, construction, maintenance, and closure sharing best practices.
Joining ASCE India for the productive exchange were representatives of the World Federation of Engineering Organizations, the Asian Development Bank, the Asian Civil Engineering Coordinating Council, the India chapter of the American Concrete Institute, and other groups. Support from the India Section Northern Region and ASCE’s student group at Punjab Engineering College helped make the event a success.
ASCE, working with the Institution of Engineers (India) and the World Federation of Engineering Organizations, submitted a paper that was included in official materials prepared for the G20 summit. “Catalyzing Investments for Climate- and Disaster-Resilient Infrastructure” is available to read and download.
