In this UN Summer Academy Trend Talk, we delved into the world of climate-informed engineering and its role in creating resilient and sustainable infrastructure. Climate change and extreme weather events pose significant challenges to our built environment, making it crucial to integrate climate considerations into engineering practices.

Together with our expert guest, Andy Bochman, Senior Grid Strategist-Defender National & Homeland Security Idaho National Laboratory, we explored the principles and practices of climate-informed engineering, focusing on the design and implementation of infrastructure projects that consider the potential impacts of climate change. We also delved into strategies to mitigate risks, enhance resilience, and adapt to changing conditions.
