Abstract

The Resilient Urban Systems project has sought to understand how community-scale energy and water systems influence community adaptive capacity and resilience to climate change. Because this pilot project focused on only two case studies, findings are preliminary and should be treated as indicative. Further research, involving case studies across a broader and larger range of contexts, is needed to verify and test their validity. Six provisional findings are drawn relating to infrastructure design for climate change adaptation.
