NEW REPORT: Building resilience through participation

Today, we launch our new report, Building resilience through participation – Mapping interdependencies and climate-related risks of infrastructure systems in Uganda, at our 25th anniversary event celebration. This report, sponsored by the Institution for Civil Engineers, examines the impact of community-led solutions in tackling the climate crisis. 

Engineers Against Poverty, Makerere University Business School and digital company thinkIT developed, with funding from the Research & Development Enabling Fund of the Institution of Civil Engineers, have developed a new framework to support communities identify climate and connected infrastructure risks. 

The report highlights the importance of interdependencies, participatory mapping, the study design including Awoja and Gerenge as case studies and the data collection involved. The report also highlights the result on climate events; the economic and social impact; government action and mitigation measures.
