How can we keep the lights on, the trains running and the pipes working? How can we protect critical infrastructure systems, essential government services and maintain business continuity?

What we build − where and how − affects the resilience our cities and critical infrastructure systems to climate change impacts and other shocks and stresses.
What we spend − where and how − indicates whether we're serious about long-term resilience.

Cross-sector planning, integrated analysis, coordinated policies, targeted finance and strategic action can help communities, infrastructure systems and businesses survive, adapt and thrive.
