Knowledge services provider Taylor & Francis has announced a partnership with the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI) to deliver a program of services designed to reach expert communities. This will enable CDRI to innovate and demonstrate evidence-based approaches for designing and implementing disaster resilient infrastructure systems.
CDRI is committed to exploring mechanisms allowing stakeholders to engage meaningfully and collaboratively to promote innovation and greater resilience, towards long-term sustainable development. Taylor & Francis, with its access to expert communities, including researchers, practitioners and policymakers, is well placed to support CDRI in establishing an active and engaged community of practice.
The latest output of this partnership is a fully open access special issue of Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure, edited by David Trejo (Oregon State University, USA), on the theme of ‘Adaptive Pathways for Resilient Infrastructure’. This issue aims to identify actions that can be implemented progressively, and provide policymakers and practitioners with case studies, evidence and reviews on integrating flexibility into infrastructure planning for long-term resilience.
Articles already accepted for the special issue report on resilient infrastructure research for energy, water and bridges. They explore resilience in the context of seismic hazard, volcano eruption, and climate change as well as across different geographies, including rural communities in Asia and the Pacific, urban India and Europe. The special issue was launched at the French Pavilion at COP27.
CDRI, Taylor & Francis and Informa Markets partnered to deliver CDRI’s first annual technical conference in October 2022, which brought together 70 international delegates in New Delhi, with 150 joining online. The proceedings of this successful event, published by Taylor & Francis, will be available soon.Click here to read the original press release.
