Ross Waugh conducted a lecture on infrastructure asset management at Central Philippine University (CPU) on 10th January 2020. CPU is located in Iloilo City, Philippines.
Ross talked on, “Climate Change Factors in Infrastructure Asset Management: New Zealand Experience and Philippine Context.”
CPU’s College of Engineering organized and hosted the lecture, led by the Dean, Engr. Dany Molina and the head of the Civil Engineering Department, Engr. Mary Earl Daryl Grio.
The participants were composed of students, local government unit representatives, professors from other engineering universities, private contractors and practitioners.
Climate Change Factors in Infrastructure Asset Management Part 1
In the first part, Ross introduced New Zealand by contrasting it with the Philippines. He shared how New Zealand started asset management practice and how the country benefited from it.
Climate Change Factors in Infrastructure Asset Management Part 2
In the second part, Ross talked about factoring climate change in infrastructure asset management. He presented how asset management practice may be applied in the Philippine context.
To start off the second part of his lecture, Ross asked Jonan Castillon to present the possible points of integration of the IIMM AMP Roadmap and the Philippine Comprehensive Development Planning process.
Jonan, an alumnus of the CPU College of Engineering, works as a consultant at Ross’s Waugh Infrastructure Management company.
Ross provided an opportunity for questions and answers towards the end of each lecture part.
He is very thankful for the success of the event. As he mentioned in his previous post, he and Jonan received a very warm welcome from the CPU people.
