    Many engineers have an interest in applying their skills and knowledge in support of humanitarian undertakings. It can be a challenge, however, to discover how to become involved, the nature of competencies and knowledge concerned, and the active organisations, institutions, and individuals with whom useful contact could be made. Participating in this webinar will help to answer the following questions: · Is it for me? · What could I do? · Which organisations, institutions and individuals are active in this field? · How can I engage with

    The 2019/20 black summer was one of the worst in recent times in the world. The season started in early Septemeber2019 in Queensland and gradually progressed into New South Wales, Victoria, Western Australia, South Australia, and the Australian Capital Territory. Thousands of firefighters and volunteers battled the fires, with millions of hectares burned, thousands of properties damaged, and countless numbers of wildlife exposed. In February 2020, the last fires were extinguished, with torrential rain assisting in putting out the remaining fires. Affected communities are recovering, COVID-19

  19. The US-based Engineering for Change is compiling a set of regional reports on education for what they term "Engineering for Global Development", effectively what we'd call Humanitarian Engineering in Australia. An Australian report was completed in 2019, with a report for Latin America released in 2020 and attached here. Interesting to see a wide range of terms and approaches used, as well as a significant local and rural focus as well as engagement with North American organisations.

  21. Electricity supply is often the focus of humanitarian engineering projects. This paper, originally published in the aesieap Goldbook of 2000, makes the point that such projects, while certainly dependent on appropriate technology, are also amenable to the same venture development disciplines as are applied to any infrastructure project.
