Alongside the transition to a low carbon society, increasing infrastructure’s resilience to climate change impacts is a high priority for this Government, to help protect the economy and its future growth.

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).
