Climate change is the most pressing issue that the world faces today, compounding the inherent vulnerabilities of infrastructure assets and systems. The way we build, renew, and strengthen infrastructure will either lock in recurrent losses and damages by natural hazards or enable resilience. This necessitates greater collaboration between governments, organizations, civil societies, communities, and individuals.

CDRI’s participation at COP26 is essential to position infrastructure resilience for achieving climate mitigation and adaptation goals. COP 26 provides a global platform where CDRI will showcase its activities and sustained commitment to build momentum for resilient infrastructure development. Following its inception, CDRI has engaged with partners and stakeholders to create global public goods that will be launched at the conference.
