Promoting Collaboration with Universities in the Philippines

Promoting Collaboration with Universities in the Philippines

Philippines University Student

AnyWay’s Climate Resilient Symposium brought together different stakeholders to collaborate on solutions for the transport infrastructure and included several academic institutions whose participation will help shape the next generation of leaders in the fight against climate change.

AnyWay’s Climate Resilient Symposium brought together different stakeholders. Amongst those in attendance were senior staff and students representing universities around the Philippines, including De La Salle University (DLSU), Technological University of the Philippines (TUP), and University of the Philippines (UP). The participation of these academic institutions underscores the collective commitment to addressing climate challenges through collaboration and knowledge sharing. 

To further expand the collaboration with these academic institutions in the Philippines, we are discussing more programs aimed at enriching the knowledge and knowhow of students and professors on climate resiliency-related aspects. By collaborating closely, we’re not just imparting knowledge, but also fostering a culture of innovation and sustainability for the next generation. Beyond theoretical engineering studies, AnyWay plans to enhance the understanding of the contribution of climate resiliency for transport infrastructure to achieving sustainable development goals. 

Capacity building plays a pivotal role in localizing solutions, ensuring that they’re tailored to the specific needs of communities. This initiative isn’t just about infrastructure; it’s about empowering local talent to address pressing challenges head-on. 

AnyWay has been providing climate resilient solutions in many countries around the world.With the Philippines being ranked as the world’s number one vulnerable country, building resilience into its infrastructure is of the highest importance.

BRINGING TOGETHER INDUSTRY LEADERS IN MANILA, PHILIPPINES TO DISCUSS CLIMATE-RESILIENT TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

ANYWAY SOLUTIONS BRINGS TOGETHER INDUSTRY LEADERS IN MANILA, PHILIPPINES TO DISCUSS CLIMATE-RESILIENT TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

In response to the urgent need for climate action in the Philippines, AnyWay Solutions Ltd. (AnyWay) held a full-day symposium to discuss climate-resilient transport infrastructure challenges and solutions.

The Symposium was held on Tuesday, April 17th, at the prestigious Mind Museum, where 180 delegates from government, policymakers, engineers, and contractors gathered to listen to and participate in a discussion on addressing the Philippines’ transport needs. Knowledge was exchanged on current practices and practical solutions to help strengthen infrastructure and the overall economy (i.e. technology solutions, including satellite technology and the role of AI) and opportunities to integrate climate-resilient solutions into transport infrastructure projects.

Esteemed guest speakers such as Secretary Borje from the Climate Change Commission (CCC), Prof. Mikail Chester from Arizona State University (ASU), Prof. Michelle Rubido Palumbarit- UN CIFAL (UNITAR), and Department of Works and Highways (DPWH), Secretary Bonoan by Assistant Secretary Constante Llanes, to name a few, graced the stage. Everyone was aligned with common goals to share knowledge and encourage action for a better climate-resilient future that supports progression towards the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

The event was moderated by Philippines News Anchor Mai Rodriguez, and the speakers were rounded out by multiple AnyWay Solutions subject matter experts. Alex Campbell, Director of Engineering Solutions, and Zeevik Halber, AnyWays CEO, introduced a holistic approach to climate-resilient transport solutions, including transport design, pavement engineering, asset management, satellite technologies and the future of AI in transport infrastructure engineering.

With transportation networks serving as vital lifelines for communities, the symposium achieved its goal of raising awareness and mobilizing resources to bolster the resilience of these essential systems and protect the economies by reducing disruption to industries and people’s livelihoods. Delegates left with a renewed sense of responsibility and increased knowledge to address the critical issue of climate change and its impact on transportation systems across vulnerable regions of the Philippines.

“We are at a critical juncture in addressing the impacts of climate change on transport infrastructure,” said Zeevik Halber, CEO at AnyWay Solutions. By bringing together leaders from all these groups to a one-day symposium, AnyWay demonstrated its holistic approach to climate resiliency beyond mere engineering. Policy making, sharing advanced technologies and techniques, capacity building, and broader awareness are all necessary elements critical to creating climate resiliency. Together, we can make a difference!”

AnyWay and De La Salle University Enter Partnership to Enhance Climate-Resilient Transportation

AnyWay and De La Salle University Partner to Enhance Climate Resilient Transportation

Memorandum of agreement signed between De La Salle University and AnyWay Solutions

We have partnered with De La Salle University (DLSU) – Gokongwei College of Engineering to exchange knowledge, and collaborate on climate-adaptive transportation infrastructure over the next five years. 

By signing a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA), we have officially partnered with De La Salle University (DLSU). The partnership aims to establish knowledge exchange and collaboration programs on climate-resilient transportation infrastructure that benefit both parties over the next five years. The MOA provides a framework for us to collectively understand, collaborate, and discuss specific programs to:  

– Identify opportunities for the exchange of faculty and research staff 

– Identify other areas of possible research interest and collaboration 

– Make faculty and students aware of the educational resources offered

 

For the first few years, we will work together with DLSU to educate the students on various aspects of climate resiliency for transport infrastructure, including pavement design, pavement rehabilitation, low-volume roads engineering and rehabilitation and upgrading of road pavement structures through implementing techniques and technologies of soil stabilization to develop graduate research projects. A mentorship program will also be established to continue research into these topics.  

At COP28, the Philippines was highlighted as one of the nations most susceptible to the impacts of climate change. Recognizing the urgency to bolster the country’s infrastructure against these effects, DLSU sought a partnership with AnyWay Solutions, based on our 20-year track record of delivering climate-resilient transportation solutions to developing countries.

This collaboration will leverage our expertise to engage with academia and global experts in a concerted effort to fortify the nation’s resilience. By building local capabilities and introducing cutting-edge technologies to the next wave of engineers, this partnership is poised to play a pivotal role in crafting a sustainable transportation network for the Philippines that will serve future generations well. Such partnerships are instrumental in transferring knowledge and expertise to those who will continue to develop and maintain the nation’s transportation infrastructure, while also fostering research and the adoption of innovative technologies to climate resilience. 

Following the signed MOA, Zeevik Halber, AnyWay CEO was invited to appear on Business Outlook on ABS-CBN News in the Philippines. In the interview, he shares more details on the partnership and the projects and solutions that will help the Philippines strengthen their transportation infrastructure and enable it to become more resilient in the wake of climate change.

See the full interview below beginning at 10:00.

As we look to the future of our industry workforce, programs like the ones we are embarking on with the DLSU will prepare the next generation of engineers for the challenges ahead of them, specifically to benefit the Philippines and build local capacity.”  –Zeevik HalberAnyWay CEO.
