New OECD publication on climate resilient infrastructure

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has recently “Climate-resilient Infrastructure: Getting the Policies Right”.

Climate change will affect all types of infrastructure, including energy, transport and water. Rising temperatures, increased flood risk and other potential hazards will threaten the reliable and efficient operation of these networks, with potentially large economic and social impacts. Decisions made now about the design, location and operation of infrastructure will determine how resilient they will be to a changing climate.

This paper provides a framework for action to help policy-makers ensure new and existing infrastructure is resilient to climate change. It examines national governments’ actions, and provides recent insights from professional and industry associations, development banks and other financial institutions on how to make infrastructure more resilient to climate change.
