Increasing infrastructure resilience: A CIRIA lecture

The resilience of the built, social and natural environment is key to a sustainable future. Although the UK’s infrastructure has proved fairly resilient historically, it is increasingly vulnerable to environmental and socio-economic pressures – both acute (immediate shock) and chronic (progressive change).

The National Infrastructure Commission's Report Anticipate, react, recover – Resilient infrastructure systems (2020) outlined a framework for evaluating resilience based on understanding of risk, ability to withstand and adaptation. The Second National Infrastructure Assessment (2023) builds on the first Assessment and the Commission’s wider body of work and focuses on key challenges not covered in the first Assessment.
Join us at our annual lecture on 17 April 2024 to discover how the construction industry is working collaboratively to create low carbon, connected and resilient infrastructure.
