How to Manage Tech and Policy Solutions During Infrastructure Master Planning
Richa Yadav is a mechanical engineer and sustainability consultant with the Cities group at BuroHappold and a cross-disciplinary specialist with experience in climate change mitigation and infrastructure master planning.
“When it comes to city and regional governments, they have a lot of influence in how cities are shaped, which, in turn, influences how much emission cities and regions generate.
There are some infrastructure systems like buildings and transportation systems that city governments have more control over. And then there are certain infrastructures like regional rail networks or energy supply that are better controlled by the government.
So, when we work on the sustainability of climate action plans, we propose strategies to help cities and regional governments work together and invest in the right solutions as needed.
When it comes to supporting projects, those projects tend to be really specific. And the objective there is to make systems that are as energy efficient and as low carbon as possible.
So, it’s about managing technology solutions and policy solutions together and creating a better future for all of us.”
