Abstract

Challenges posed by the impacts of climate change and extreme weather suggest that new approaches are required to increase the resilience of energy and water systems and build the adaptive capacity of householders and communities. There is a clear need to better understand how individuals, communities, organisational, economic and political arrangements interact with these new and emerging technical systems.
