International Conference on Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (ICDRI) 2022
The International Conference on Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (ICDRI) is CDRI's flagship event bringing together policymakers, researchers and practitioners from across the world to strengthen the global discourse on disaster and climate resilient infrastructure.
Set against the backdrop of global transitions that are transforming the world we live in, the Conference will provide an opportunity to address issues around infrastructure transitions, risk governance and finance, and putting people at the centre of building resilient infrastructure.
We are in the midst of several global transitions. These transitions are changing the way we are reimagining our future, the infrastructure that will get built. At the heart of these complex transitions, are people. In light of these transitions, new questions arise with regards to the notion of “resilient infrastructure.” And how can people be made change agents in building resilient infrastructure? The ICDRI will be an opportunity to address and emphasize on Resilience of Transitioning Infrastructure Systems as a goal that is instrumental to realizing 1.5oC, climate adaptation for the most vulnerable, and attaining energy transition targets that integrate resilience.
ICDRI2022 will engage with decision-makers, practitioners and communities from across the world to discuss challenges, identify good practices, develop collaboration and galvanize concrete actions. It will include multi-sectoral and multi-country discussions around infrastructure transitions, risk governance and finance, innovation and human-centered, ecologically sensitive design for building resilience. Policy, regional, sectoral and thematic forums led by global experts along with a space for networking opportunities will constitute the structure of the conference.
