Engineers with an interest in sustainable infrastructure will have a chance to hear how countries have implemented best-practice approaches to it at a joint UN and ICE event.

The free, virtual seminar will be hosted by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the ICE on 31 May 2023.

Speakers will share how three countries – Egypt, Ghana and Pakistan – have applied policy tools from these organisations to plan and deliver more sustainable infrastructure.

The policy tools referred to include UNEP’s International Good Practice Principles for Sustainable Infrastructure and the ICE-led Enabling Better Infrastructure (EBI) programme.

Who’s speaking at the event?

The panel of speakers sharing their first-hand insight experience with infrastructure policy tools will include:

Professor Jim Hall, chair of the event, said: "Sustainability and resiliency concerns need to be embedded in our planning and delivery processes at the outset, at both a regional and national level.

"Insights shared in this discussion will help other decision makers take best-practice approaches back to their own roles."
