Length: 75 minutes


You are invited to join the latest interactive webinar in the Sustainable Infrastructure: Putting Principles into Practice series, hosted by the Sustainable Infrastructure Community of Learners, on Wednesday, July 14. The webinar will focus on Principle #2 from UNEP’s International Good Practice Principles for Sustainable Infrastructure: Responsible, Resilient, and Flexible Planning.

The session will first provide an introduction to Principle #2, followed by a technical presentation on systems-based tools developed by UNOPS that help infrastructure planners prioritize infrastructure projects and systems that are responsible, resilient, and flexible from the outset. The remainder of the session will include the exploration of a relevant case study, including interactive activities that will allow exchange between the presenters and participants regarding sustainability challenges and solutions related to real-world infrastructure projects.

Please feel free to share this announcement with others in your network.
