|On behalf of WCCE President Jorge Emilio Abramian, hereby we inform of an open call for member organizations to join WCCE’s task force to review WFEO’s Working Group on the Global Infrastructure Report (GIR) deliverables.|
WFEO's Executive Board has requested WCCE's assistance on the evaluation of its Global Infrastructure Report (GIR) Working Group, as it has reached its first term. The Working Group has been hosted by the Federation of African Engineering Organizations, under the chairmanship of Martin Van Veelen. The main outcome so far has been the release in March 2022 of a report, which can be downloaded here, with a request to publish it as a WFEO document. WFEO’s Executive Board has requested WCCE to issue an independent evaluation of this Report.
WCCE’s Executive Committee agreed to open an open call for member organizations to host WCCE’s next General Assemblies (2022, 2023, and 2024). Expressions of interest are to be submitted from the Presidency of the host member organization to WCCE’s Secretariat including at least the following details:
- Host city and access details (Distance to the nearby international airport).
- Proposed dates
- Potential concurrent events with WCCE’s GA.
- Contact to request any expanded information on the proposal.
- Any other information that may be considered relevant to evaluate the proposal.
Expressions of interest should be submitted in writing to Secretariat
We remain at your disposal for any clarification through WCCE Secretariat
International engineering forum discussions always turn around a certain number of topics that slowly change over time based on drivers that sometimes are external to the profession. The question is how far are the current topics of discussion from the feeling of the practitioners. WCCE prepared and conducted a survey among civil engineers of the world to learn about their perceptions about some issues that affect the profession. The 14 questions included in the survey covered education, professional practice, ethics, and the importance of global issues (SDGs). In total, 120 answers were received from 30 countries (5 continents) giving an interesting global coverage. The number of participants in each country varied widely. For this reason, the answers were grouped by country and averaged to be able to work with 30 representative answers instead of 120. This procedure proved that the global results do not differ that much from the nationally averaged results, although it certainly flattened the extreme values.
