New Report: Ready for Tomorrow: Seven Strategies for Climate-Resilient Infrastructure

As the impacts of climate change are felt more forcefully around the globe, decision makers are asking, with increasing urgency, how they can make their communities and businesses more resilient. One obvious place to start is infrastructure. To address this, the Hoover Institution convened a yearlong collaboration with leading experts and practitioners in development banks, government agencies, universities, private firms, non-governmental organizations, and professional associations. It drew on diverse perspectives to the challenges of resilience, including physical and social science, engineering, policy, finance, and education. The resulting paper lays out seven strategies for developing more climate-resilient infrastructure.

SURVEY | What are the information needs of engineers?

AGWA is seeking feedback from the practicing engineers within our network!

You are being invited to participate in a research study titled “Lifelong Learning for Engineers in Practice.” This study is being done by Mary DeJong and Wendy Holliday from Northern Arizona University.

The purpose of this research study is to investigate the information needs and practices of professional engineers. Results will be used to help determine the most valuable resources for current and future engineering students at NAU and other universities nationwide. The researchers want to learn more about the information sources engineers use in their practice and which they find most valuable; how engineers locate information sources; and barriers to access to information.

Please click here to take this 5-minute survey that benefits the next generation of engineers (or visit https://www5.nau.edu/selectsurvey/TakeSurvey.aspx?SurveyID=7lL14o70). Your participation and responses will remain anonymous.
