This technical annex is part of the supporting materials for the Commission’s work on Anticipate, React, Recover: Resilient infrastructure systems, the final report of the Resilience Study which was completed in May 2020.

It reviews the recommendations made in the report that could have significant spending implications, and assesses:

  • the impact of the recommendations on the Commission’s objectives to support sustainable economic growth across all regions of the UK, improve competitiveness and improve quality of life
  • the expected costs of the recommendations, and their impact on the Commission’s fiscal and economic remits
  • uncertainty, distributional effects and risks around these estimates and the balance of evidence behind recommendations, as far as it has been possible to make these assessments.
