Suggested Topic Categories

In general, we will rely on the community of practitioners to be the barometer indicating what topics resonate most the field of resilience/sustainable infrastructure. Please do not feel bound by this list:

  • Public Health Resiliency/ Health Care Infrastructure Resiliency
  • Energy/ Power/ Grid Resiliency
  • Transportation Resiliency
  • Water Infrastructure Resiliency
  • Cybersecurity Requirements
  • Public/Private Partnerships for Resiliency
  • Historical Building Resiliency

Infrastructure resiliency is a crucial topic of discussion as the country continues to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic and we look at the hard-won lessons over the past year. Our part of the country continues to see warming temperature trends and heavy weather events of increasing frequency and intensity. A recent climatecentral.org evaluation of long-term precipitation data places Philadelphia 3rd on the list of U.S. cities with the largest increase in heavy downpours (360% increase in the last decade).

The Philadelphia Post of the Society of American Military Engineers is hosting a symposium which hopes to bring together practitioners from the Greater Philadelphia Area and beyond who can speak to infrastructure resiliency and how it can help public and private entities survive these turbulent times. We continue to keep an eye on public health restrictions, but we are cautiously optimistic that we will be able to host an in-person symposium this year.
