Resilient urban systems: a socio-technical study of community scale climate change adaptation initiatives

This project aims to address knowledge gaps concerning these systems, such as how households and communities use them, and how and why ‘local’ stakeholders develop these systems. The findings will be used by policy makers aiming to encourage wider uptake of community energy and water systems resilient to the impacts of climate change.
