2012 sector resilience plan

The 2012 sector resilience plan sets out the current level of resilience to natural hazards for the 9 national infrastructure sectors.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government



Sector resilience plans set out the resilience of the UK’s most important infrastructure to the relevant risks identified in the National Risk Assessment. Produced annually, plans are placed before ministers to alert them to any perceived vulnerabilities, with a programme of measures to improve resilience where necessary.

The 2012 Sector Resilience Plans extended the scope to allow assessment of the resilience of sector’s most important infrastructure to all risks (threats and hazards).
