The inquiry is considering the resilience of UK’s Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) to the effects of climate change, which is predicted to result in an increase in extreme weather events such as flooding, droughts, wildfires and heatwaves, as well as rising sea levels.
The Critical National Infrastructure sectors incorporate: Chemicals, Civil Nuclear, Communications, Defence, Emergency Services, Energy, Finance, Food, Government, Health, Space, Transport and Water. The Committee is considering CNI resilience to climate change in the short (2 years), medium (5 years), and long term (20+ years).
