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