It is essential that Auckland's infrastructure is well-functioning and can withstand short-term shocks, such as flooding. It also needs to work well in the long-term, particularly in the face of climate changes.
Climate change will put additional strain on our infrastructure. New infrastructure will need to recognise future pressures and be resilient and adaptable.
Much of our infrastructure, such as water supply, wastewater, stormwater networks and power supply networks are ageing and does not meet modern requirements or expectations.
