Visiting Professor, University of Surrey & Director, Climate Sense / John Dora Consulting
This webinar will be delivered by Professor John Dora, director of Climate Sense and John Dora Consulting.
In recent years there has been a growing realisation across the world that the climate is changing at a far faster rate than predicted. This webinar will present new challenges to civil engineers as society will depend more than ever on an economy that is resilient to future climate impacts, as well as being low carbon and sustainable in resource consumption.
John will outline how the industry can prepare and embed resilience to climate change in infrastructure, bringing insights from research programmes and developments in guidance and standards.
He will cover ISO 14090:2019 Adaptation to Climate Change (John led the development of this, the first international standard on climate change resilience), and will outline his work with BSI and CEN on how future resilience can be factored into Eurocodes and other infrastructure standards.
