Engineering Solutions for Sustainable Development

March 4 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC-6

Free

Engineers face important challenges and play a crucial role in shaping the world around us. Climate change is one of the greatest and unprecedent challenges of our time, but there is an opportunity for engineering to lead the way towards a more sustainable future.

Public policies, climate risk assessments and prioritized adaptation strategies are part of that way. In Costa Rica, the methodology for climate risk assessments called MERCI – CR is one example of a multidisciplinary approach were engineering, policymakers, scientists, communities with their local knowledge and many other different professional fields, all working together, can contribute to create a more sustainable world.

CFIA invites its members and government agencies to the keynote presentation of MERCI- CR Protocol, the methodology and its implementation to adapt to climate change. This is a methodology based on similar international protocols, adapted to national conditions, which allows analyzing the interaction between local climatic variables (current and future) and the different construction components of infrastructures.
