The National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) provides the government with impartial, expert advice on major long-term infrastructure challenges. Each Parliament the NIC carry out a National Infrastructure Assessment (NIA) setting out the Commission’s assessment of long-term infrastructure needs with recommendations to the government.
The call for evidence poses a range of questions divided into cross-cutting themes. These are transport, digital communications, energy, water and wastewater, (drainage and sewerage), flood risk management, and solid waste.
Accordingly ProMeet worked with the NIC to design and deliver 8 workshops, each focussed on a different theme, or aspect of that theme, to gather evidence from experts in industry, academia, NGO's, government departments and public bodies and interest groups.
In total 600 participants attended the 8 workshops over 5 months.
