The world is facing a climate crisis that requires a response of planetary scale to limit global emissions below 1.5º C. Sustainable infrastructure is a pathway to prevent climate change. The November 2019 Zofnass Workshop is dedicated to discussing the potential of sustainable infrastructure for preventing climate change and making the case for the investments necessary to roll out at the pace needed.
The Zofnass Program at Harvard (ZPH) ongoing research on “the Business Case for Planning Sustainable infrastructure” will help frame the discussions throughout the workshop, introducing attendees to sustainable infrastructure promoting tools and initiatives. The panels will feature real-world case studies that range from water infrastructure, airports, to beach clean ups, and how these sustainable infrastructure projects are aligned to the attainment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to prevent climate change.
The panels are structured according to either (1) case studies, which we have already studied or (2) projects that have the potential to develop into case studies to fill gaps in our research spectrum. The ZPH Sustainable Infrastructure Advisory Board members, key partners in case study development, will have an active role in the presentation and moderation of the panels.
