Our built environments will be subject to more frequent and intense climatic impacts than in the past, and we will be living in a climate not experienced before. These environments are the setting for most of our daily activity, from our homes, to where we work, shop, and socialise.
The built environment also includes the supporting infrastructure, such as water supply, telecommunications, and energy networks. Innovating adaptation measures supporting our built environment will ensure the long-term integrity of the assets we interact with every day. Innovation is vital to our built environment to support a decarbonised, sustainable economy.
