The International Coalition for Sustainable Infrastructure Innovation Action track has been working to highlight innovative sustainable and resilient projects and programs from around the world. This session will explore the work completed to date by highlighting key sustainability programs that move innovative thinking forward, our research into the most innovative sustainable and resilient projects from around the globe and recognize exemplar cities leading in sustainable and resilient innovations. The discussion will focus on the areas in which we have found important ongoing innovation, areas in which more innovative approaches are needed, and on case studies representing multi-faceted and systems-focused innovation.
