In Practice: Delivery of sustainable infrastructure services
Investing in infrastructure for an uncertain future is one of the major challenges for governments, policymakers, urban planners and international bodies. Climate change, population growth, emerging technologies and resource shortages has made effective infrastructure planning for a turbulent world a key focus for decades to come.
Using our innovative modelling system-of-systems approach, we help decision-makers analyse long-term strategies and make informed investment decisions.
At the core of our work is analysis of:
- the interdependencies of national and international infrastructure to provide an overall assessment, and
- understanding risk, vulnerabilities and resilience of interdependent networked infrastructure.
