The first long-term view of the UK’s infrastructure needs was published in July 2018 by the National Infrastructure Commission, underpinned by our advanced modelling and analysis of future scenarios.
New tool set to ensure global infrastructure development is sustainable
In collaboration with the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS), ITRC at University of Oxford developed a new tool set to help global policy-makers in global infrastructure development to develop policies that are sustainable and support achievement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
ITRC-MISTRAL played an important role in the National Infrastructure Commission’s (NIC) report Preparing for a drier future – England’s water infrastructure needs. This report assesses the options for ensuring stable water supplies even during droughts.
