Climate Resilient Infrastructure: Preparing for a Changing Climate

The document highlights important themes such as: the risk climate change presents to infrastructure interdependencies; adaptation investment; and potential economic opportunities. The document is linked to wider Government work on infrastructure, in particular the Government’s National Infrastructure Plan. In addition, the UK Government’s first Adaptation Programme in 2012 will report on progress made and what further actions might be required to increase the climate resilience of infrastructure.
