Talk to Dr Chris Luebkeman
How can infrastructure facilitate a better quality of life?
Infrastructure issues contribute to poverty in both developing and developed countries, impacting safety, health and overall quality of life. How can we build fairer, more resilient communities for those who need it the most?
The increase in profile over the past few years of people displaced by war reiterates our duty of care to the vulnerable, and has drawn responses such as quick-build shelters and digitally hosted outreach programmes. With our global population steadily rising and our life expectancy increasing, it is crucial we improve access to shelter and basic human needs around the world, and reach a point where everyone can afford an ‘acceptable’ standard of living: access to adequate food, water, energy, clothes, shelter, education and healthcare. The Drivers of Change: Poverty cards examine the key issues contributing to poverty in developing and developed countries.
