Resilience of UK Infrastructure
National infrastructure, such as transport, energy, water supplies and communications, is essential to the UK. Investment is needed to protect it from existing natural hazards and any effects of future climate change. This briefing outlines efforts to improve the resilience of infrastructure to these risks. Vulnerability due to the interdependence of different infrastructure components, where failure of one may lead to failure of others, is also discussed.
