Detail

Increasing infrastructure’s resilience to climate change impacts is a high priority for 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).

Themes include the risk climate change presents to infrastructure interdependencies; adaptation investment; and potential economic opportunities.
