“Innovative Infrastructure Solutions”
The FIDIC Centenary Conference in Barcelona identified the many challenges facing humanity in the coming years. These include urbanisation, water shortages, more efficient and alternative energy sources, improved transport, sanitation and waste management. Millions of people still have limited or no access to basic infrastructure, and more developed nations need to find more sustainable options for investment in infrastructure.
The Consulting Engineering industry, which carries considerable responsibility for identifying such solutions, requires the support of many other partners to achieve such solutions. Governments, financial institutions, industry federations and associations, professional institutions, the insurance industry, and many others all need to find better ways of collaborating to achieve these global objectives.^
With the backdrop of the buoyant Brazilian market and within the context of the broader demands across Latin America, these cross cutting issues will be explored in depth utilising a range of international experts and industry leaders.
Today, more than ever before, the critical decisions being made on investment in infrastructure require suitable professional advice, as early as possible, taking into account the full cycle of the infrastructure asset.
The world continues to change rapidly, with the impact of decisions made in one country often rapidly felt by other countries, in this increasingly global connectivity. A more collaborative approach is therefore essential to sound economic growth and sustainable development.
