Are you passionate about creating a greener and more sustainable future? Do you want to be at the forefront of driving positive change in the built environment? We invite you to join an extraordinary event organized by ICE and UNEP on May 31, 2023, where you can explore the application of policy tools to make infrastructure more sustainable and impactful.
In today’s world, sustainable and resilient infrastructure plays a vital role in achieving global development objectives, such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Paris Climate Agreement, and the new Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework. Infrastructure affects human health, economic development, and community resilience. However, it can also have negative environmental impacts that hinder progress.
To ensure service delivery with positive environmental outcomes, we must integrate sustainability and resilience into infrastructure planning and delivery from the very beginning. This event will showcase the United Nations Environment Programme’s (UNEP) International Good Practice Principles for Sustainable Infrastructure and the Enabling Better Infrastructure (EBI) guidance. We will learn from government officials and practitioners from Egypt, Ghana, and Pakistan who have successfully implemented these tools in their long-term infrastructure planning processes.
Keynote speakers will share their firsthand experiences, highlighting the benefits and key lessons learned from utilizing these tools. By attending, you will gain valuable insights and practical knowledge to enhance your own infrastructure decision-making processes.
