This publication examines the progress being made on climate change adaptation in the United Kingdom. In the context of ever-increasing vulnerability of infrastructure and networks to extreme weather events, the document recommends the government to:
- support further research into cricital network 'pinch-points' and interdepedencies, starting by coordinating the necessary data-gathering which is currently incomplete.
- make adaptation reporting a mandatory requirement for organisations managing critical infrastructure and services.
- reconsider the case for introducing universal water-metering in water-stressed areas.
