Climate Resilient Infrastructure: Preparing for a Changing Climate

This document has been produced as a response to calls from industry – infrastructure owners, investors and insurers – for a Government vision and policy on adapting infrastructure to climate change. It is designed to catalyse action to adapt infrastructure in the energy, ICT, transport and water sectors (infrastructure networks).

It makes the case for action, identifies who needs to act, the challenges to acting and the opportunities available. Recognising that infrastructure is largely private sector funded and operated, it sets out how Government can assist others in realising an infrastructure network able to adapt to the impacts of climate change.

The document highlights important themes such as: the risk climate change presents to infrastructure interdependencies; adaptation investment; and potential economic opportunities.

UK government, 2011.
