Infrastructure resilience and maintenance
Following the COVID-19 shock to economies and societies, many countries are including renewed infrastructure investment as a stimulus measure. Such investments present an opportunity for governments to address short-term infrastructure challenges through maintenance spending while building resilient and sustainable infrastructure for the future. Tackling the complex challenges and opportunities related to infrastructure resilience and maintenance requires a multidimensional approach, considering several factors and stakeholders at the local, regional, national and global levels. This approach seeks to get the best out of the asset over its life cycle, across functions and tasks and the entire infrastructure system/network, leveraging new technologies and nature-based solutions opportunities.
