ASCE-47874 - ICSI 2014: Creating Infrastructure for a Sustainable World
Edited by John Crittenden, Chris Hendrickson, and Bill Wallace - 2014 / 1121 pp.
Proceedings of the 2014 International Conference on Sustainable Infrastructure, held in Long Beach, California, November 6-8, 2014. Sponsored by the Committee on Sustainability of the American Society of Civil Engineers
ICSI 2014: Creating Infrastructure for a Sustainable World contains 104 peer-reviewed papers which provide a comprehensive assessment of the current state of sustainable infrastructure on a global scale. Decades of non-sustainable economic development have changed the conditions under which infrastructure must operate and have impacted the cost and availability of critical resources.
Topics include: infrastructure resiliency; adaptation to climate change and extreme hazards; sustainability rating systems for the built environment; sustainable project management; financing infrastructure; education and public awareness; ecocities; and sustainable infrastructure for developing nations.
This collection will be of interest to practitioners, researchers, policy makers, and public infrastructure owners, planners, and managers.
