GEO-RESILIENCE 2023

Geo-Resilience 2023 is the third in a series of biennial conferences organised by the BGA, starting with Chalk 2018 (London) and followed by Piling 2020 (online). Geo-Resilience 2023 will be held in Cardiff in March 2023.

Welcome

The climate emergency means we are facing more extreme weather events and that, together with other natural and human-induced hazards, threatens our infrastructure and the natural environment. Floods and landslides are becoming more frequent and of greater magnitude and consequence. Earthquakes pose major hazards in many parts of the world. At the same time, much of our infrastructure is ageing, deteriorating and becoming more fragile. Our built and natural environment needs the ability to withstand extreme shocks and stresses, to be adapted for changing conditions, and significant interventions are needed to ensure recovery from extreme and frequent events.

Geo-infrastructure comprising earthworks for transport infrastructure, flood embankments and coastal works, drainage systems, foundations and retaining structures are key components in supporting our economy and society. We must also work with our natural environment to reduce the risks from geohazards that threaten people and their activities. Therefore, it is timely for the British Geotechnical Association (BGA) to hold a conference on Geo-Resilience to address these issues.

Geo-Resilience 2023 is the third in a series of biennial conferences organised by the BGA, starting with Chalk 2018 (London) and followed by Piling 2020 (online). Geo-Resilience 2023 will be held in Cardiff in March 2023.

Themes for the conference will be:

Resilience-based frameworks and systems in geo-engineering

Frameworks and systems used for design, specification, construction, maintenance, operation and decision-making in geo-engineering.

Climate resilience of geo-infrastructure

Investigating and improving resilience to climate change for geo-infrastructure such as earthworks, slopes, retaining walls and foundations.

Resilience to geo-hazards

Geo-engineering works to enhance resilience to geo-hazards, such as flood events, landslides and earthquakes.

Codes and Standards

Changes that are needed to design codes and standards to ensure resilience of geo-infrastructure.

Mainstreaming climate change adaptation for resilient geo-assets

Ways in which policies and measures for climate change adaptation can be integrated into ongoing planning and decision-making, so that ideas become “mainstream”.

Community engagement in geo-resilience

How community groups can be involved in decision making and developing practical solutions to improve resilience.

Hazard, vulnerability and risk assessment and management for resilient geo-assets

Risk assessment processes for geo-engineering and their use for managing risk and enhancing resilience

Zero net carbon initiatives related to geo-engineering

How sustainability approaches can contribute to improving the resilience of geo-assets.
