ABSTRACT: Cities contain over half the world’s population, consume two-thirds of global energy, and are highly vulnerable to climate change. Advances in information technology enabling more intelligent and responsive urban infrastructure has the potential to improve city operations and manage demand. Historically, planning and investment for urban infrastructure has been done sector-by-sector, but infrastructure is becoming more interdependent due to rising cross-sector demands, climate change policy and increasing use of information and communication technologies (ICT).
Community Focus Group: Rail Emergency Preparedness Toolkit
On Sunday, August 21, 2016, two trains collided in west Toronto around 5:20 am. Alarmed residents weren't sure what to do while crews scrambled to contain a diesel fuel leak. In response, Safe Rail Communities has developed a Rail Emergency Preparedness toolkit, with partial funding provided by Transport Canada. Now is your chance to share your thoughts on this new national resource.
