Greening Britain's Infrastructure Reception
This summer is an important one for planning the country’s future infrastructure needs. We are holding an event to discuss the recently published National Infrastructure Assessment, and what opportunities there are for sustainable infrastructure.
The National Infrastructure Assessment (NIA) will, according to the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC), ‘analyse the UK’s long-term economic infrastructure needs, outline a strategic vision over the next 30 years, and set out recommendations for how identified needs should be met.’
The NIC’s Infrastructure Priorities include: connected, liveable city-regions; infrastructure to support housing; eliminating carbon emissions from energy and waste; and reducing the risk of drought and flooding. This has many applications to sustainable infrastructure in the themes of decarbonisation, climate change adaptation and natural capital.
