Thank you to all of our visitors. We really appreciate your interest, and plan to continue to provide relevant infrastructure management information here for you to view and read.
Every country in the world has infrastructure, and good infrastructure management is a subject of interest in every community.
Even in Syria, which is being devastated by civil war – infrastructure, and infrastructure management is important. Although 4 million people have left the country due to the civil war, and many hundreds of thousands have died, 18 million people still live in Syria.
These citizens still need transportation, telecommunication, electricity, gas, water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure systems and networks to provide the services necessary for daily life. In 2011 Syria’s major cities were Aleppo (3.2 million population), Damascus (2.7 million population), Homs (1.4 million population) and Hama (900,000 population).
The full range of urban infrastructure is needed with urban areas and populations of this size.
Syria’s infrastructure management engineers and planners have the additional challenge of managing through the effects of civil war, in addition to the normal challenges of infrastructure operations, maintenance, rehabilitation and renewal.
Welcome to Inframanage.com, and we trust you find information here that is helpful and useful to your work in very difficult conditions.
