DRI Technical Conference 2022: Adaptive Pathways for Resilient Infrastructure

Call for Abstracts

The Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI) is inviting abstracts and contributions for their technical conference: DRI Technical Conference 2022 – Adaptive Pathways for Resilient Infrastructure. The conference will be complemented by a Special Issue of the Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure journal, on the same theme. The initiative aims to promote multidisciplinary approaches for disaster and climate resilient infrastructure that has traditionally straddled several domains.

The CDRI aims to bolster global thinking and action on Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (DRI) through knowledge creation, curation, and dissemination. The DRI Technical Conference 2022 will therefore bring together researchers, practitioners and policy makers working in disaster and climate resilient infrastructure (DRI) to exchange, review, critically assess and evaluate pertinent issues.

The 2022 conference aims to produce a defining narrative on Adaptive Pathways for Resilient Infrastructure and identify avenues for future research and policy planning for disaster and climate resilient infrastructure. It will feature presentations by leading researchers, thought-provoking discussions, and debates on developmental and policy matters that the world must focus on. 

The DRI Technical Conference 2022 will be held on 12 – 13 October 2022 in New Delhi, India, to commemorate the International Day for Disaster Reduction. Parts of the conference program will be broadcast online.

Date of Conference: 12-13 October 2022 (Residential event)
Venue of Conference: New Delhi, India
Fees: There is no registration fee for conference. Visa, travel and accommodation of invited authors may be sponsored by CDRI. Please note, seats are limited.

    Financing the resilience of infrastructure has solid economic and financial case. Resilience investing has upfront costs, but it gets offset by long-term financial benefits through minimized impacts and recovery time after a shock. #resilientinfra #disasterriskfinance https://t.co/meO01s2uB9
