The Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI) will host the fifth edition of ‘International Conference on Disaster Resilient Infrastructure’ (ICDRI 2023) from 4 – 5 April 2023. The theme of the conference is Delivering Resilient and Inclusive Infrastructure: Pathways for Risk-Informed Systems, Practices and Investments.
The two-day hybrid conference seeks to emphasize the need to integrate resilience in infrastructure, ensure access, delivery, and continuity of essential services to people and communities in the face of increasing exposure and impact of disasters and extreme climatic events.
ICDRI 2023 aims to convene Member countries, private sector, organizations, institutions, infrastructure actors, and stakeholders to strengthen the global discourse on disaster and climate-resilient infrastructure. The focus of the conference will be on exploring, sharing, and identifying actionable solutions and actions for mainstreaming resilience principles into sector-wide policies, processes, and practices across different stakeholder groups.
