LWEC Infrastructure Climate Change Impacts Report Card Published

The LWEC Infrastructure Climate Change Impacts Report Card has been published. The production of the card was led by a working group chaired by CESER Director, Professor Richard Dawson.


This LWEC Report Card is aimed at anyone who works with, or has an interest in, infrastructure in the UK. Infrastructure provides services important for our safety, our health and our economic development. Climate change may affect it in a number of ways. Focusing on the possible physical impacts of climate change, this card sets out to aid understanding of the nature and scale of those impacts on UK infrastructure and so inform decisions about infrastructure’s management and further development. The card provides a high-level summary of the main findings from 12 detailed technical reports prepared by leading experts in their fields using the best available science from academic literature.

The card can be downloaded in pdf format [6.7MB]

The sectoral working papers that underpin the card and other relevant information can be accessed here:

Please disseminate the card as widely as possible by forwarding the link to it to others in your organisation and stakeholder networks. If you have any queries please contact
