A CLIMATE RESILIENT NATION: A SHARED VISION TO 2100

How do we ensure that our shared ambitions match the scale of the challenge and create resilient coastal and inland places for people? What is the latest evidence saying?

TODAY’S INFRASTRUCTURE RESILIENT IN TOMORROW’S CLIMATE

What action do we need to take to ensure the coastal and inland infrastructure people and places rely on is resilient in tomorrow’s climate? How do we put resilient infrastructure at the centre of supporting sustainable growth?
