Synthesis of the independent studies commissioned by the Government’s Infrastructure and Adaptation Project

On 9 May 2011 the Government published Climate Resilient Infrastructure: Preparing for a Changing Climate which sets out the Government’s view on adapting infrastructure in the energy, ICT, transport and water sectors to the impacts of climate change.

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.
