Building for Tomorrow: Jobs, Climate, and Resilient Infrastructure

President Biden’s American Jobs Plan would invest more than $2 trillion over eight years to modernize the nation’s infrastructure. With Congress shifting focus to infrastructure legislation, there is renewed interest in the need to upgrade the nation’s transportation, waterway, power, broadband, and industrial infrastructure. The increasing frequency of extreme weather events highlights the importance of climate-resilient infrastructure that extends project lifespans, avoids future damages and loss of life, and ensures that communities and businesses can rely on modern infrastructure for economic growth.

In this webinar, experts will discuss opportunities to strengthen the resilience of our infrastructure and criteria to guide resilient infrastructure legislation and projects.
