Date & Time
Tuesday, December 13, 2022, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

As demonstrated by the ever-increasing number of disasters and conflicts around the world, including the current one in Europe, international financial institutions (IFIs), clients, contractors and consulting engineers have to deal with a myriad of challenging issues when they are working in disaster and conflict zones around the world. 

These issues include: -
1.    Safety of personnel, equipment and infrastructure 
2.    Impacts of sanctions compliance 
3.    Contractual impacts related to:
a.    Schedule
b.    Costs
c.    Client coordination
d.    Scope fluctuations
e.    Payments.

This essential FIDIC webinar aims to share the experiences that IFI project stakeholders have had when dealing with projects affected by disaster and conflict, the approaches adopted or envisioned and the key lessons learned to mitigate the impact of working in disaster and conflict zones.

In an ever-changing and uncertain world, this event will help to inform engineering, construction and infrastructure professionals about the key issues, problems, dangers and challenges that they need to be aware of when working in conflict and disaster zones and what they can do to mitigate them.
