“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much” – Helen Keller, 1888
Following its evolution philosophy, the ICONHIC2022 edition ventures the step forward: to build upon facilitative dialogue and strong synergies and propose an informed and realistic course of action against catastrophic natural events.
Join the discussion in Athens on 5-7 July 2022!
CREATING A MULTI-STAKEHOLDER MEETING POINT
In a time of augmented need for interdisciplinary effort, ICONHIC2022 aims to bring together actors from different fields (engineers, insurers, cat modellers, policymakers, NGOs) in order to facilitate dialogue and shape an informed course of action towards the ever-increasing extreme natural events.
LEVERAGING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TO MITIGATE NATURAL DISASTERS
In light of the rapid technological advances in the fields of Big Data, Machine Learning,
and Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), ICONHIC2022 aims to highlight how this technology combined with engineering knowledge can become the decisive link in the action chain towards disaster relief, preparedness and reduction of economic losses due to natural hazards.
TACKLING THE PRESSING CHALLENGES OF CLIMATE CHANGE
As extreme climate-related phenomena are becoming the new normal, ICONHIC2022 encourages discussions on the needs and gaps associated with the ambitious climate mitigation & adaptation targets set for infrastructure worldwide, highlights the impacts of climate variability, and brings innovative solutions to the forefront.
SHAPING URBAN SUSTAINABILITY REQUIREMENTS
As countries across the globe become increasingly urbanized, ICONHIC2022 targets the appropriate synergies for an in-depth discussion on the pathways to be followed for encouraging investments and informing management decisions towards sustainable urban environments.
STRUCTURING AND FINANCING CLIMATE RESILIENCE
Accessing capital and financing for climate resilience projects and justifying the upfront costs to taxpayers or shareholders is challenging. In ICONHIC we will discuss how climate resilience may create value and impact project valuations, and the availability and forms of support of climate financing.
