At CENIT, our commitment to fostering urban resilience and enhancing transportation systems is an ongoing journey. On November 15, we reached another milestone with our eighth training session as part of our capacity development program, focusing on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs).
Titled “Resilient Cities and Creating Resilient Transportation Systems, Smart Cities and Intelligent & Innovative Transport Technologies,” this session covered key aspects of urban resilience and the future of transportation. Participants included representatives from Ankara Metropolitan Municipality and EGO General Directorate, underscoring the importance of the topics covered.
During this session, we explored the fundamental concept of resilience in engineering and systems. The discussions extended to concepts related to risk and uncertainty in project evaluation, providing a comprehensive view of how resilience factors into decision-making processes. Also we discussed the relationship between decision-making under uncertainty and making a resilient system.
Smart cities have become a pivotal element in the urban landscape, and our training delved deep into this transformative concept. We explored the basic concepts and trending processes within the realm of smart cities, and looked at how innovative and intelligent transport technologies are shaping the future of urban mobility.
One of the key takeaways from the training was the specificity of resilience within transportation systems and cities. We examined the intricacies of risk assessment in transportation, emphasising the critical role it plays in developing resilient transportation systems.
Throughout the session, we discussed the ever-evolving landscape of smart city concepts, trends, and innovations. The dynamic nature of these urban environments calls for constant adaptation and forward-thinking strategies to address risk and resilience assessment issues effectively.
