Resilient communities for a livable future

As AECOM's global team of experts works to transform the built environment, the company is constantly evaluating how to better prepare communities to withstand the negative impacts of climate variability, sea level change, urban sprawl into more environmentally sensitive areas, loss of natural buffers and other effects of rapid population growth and urbanization.

These challenges are primary considerations when assessing the feasibility and sustainability of our projects, and AECOM continuously mobilizes support to deliver infrastructure solutions that help develop resilient communities to help ensure a more livable future for all.
