Environmental infrastructure plays a critical role in our lives. We all rely on a network of services that ensure our homes remain habitable and the environment we live in is protected.
The Environment Agency regulates those that provide water and waste services, it builds defences that protect us from flooding and advises government on the provision of national infrastructure. Sir Philip Dilley will explore the current and future role of the Environment Agency as regulator, provider and advisor on environmental infrastructure and the associated challenges of changing climate.
