Our Technical Director, Dr Juliet Mian was interviewed by CIHT for their series of CIHT podcasts on infrastructure resilience. This episode is relevant to today’s global events as the world looks to respond to, and be resilient to, Covid 19, the global pandemic.

The interview looks at the implications for infrastructure as a result of the climate crisis, how black sky hazard scenarios can help and how green infrastructure can make places and people more resilient. There are lessons given from Day Zero, where Cape Town faced the situation of running out of water.

The CIHT podcast is an interview with Justin Ward speaking with Juliet Mian, an infrastructure resilience expert. Juliet has many years of experience on a wide range of infrastructure projects across many sectors. She is Technical Director of Resilience Shift, Associate Director at Arup and also a UK representative to PIARC.
