Resilient Infrastructure in the Age of Climate Change
The very first ASCE/EWRI/C4S Sustainability Conference in 2008 explored the potential impacts of climate change on Pittsburgh regional infrastructure. Since the inaugural conference in 2008, the landscape and dialogue relating to climate change has greatly changed. The dialogue has now shifted to developing real and tangible infrastructure protection strategies against the impacts climate change while at the same time finding new and innovative ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Join us for this year’s conference where we will showcase various strategies, tools, and real-world case studies for creating resilient infrastructure and communities for a changing climate.
