Adapting to environmental and energy uncertainties

This research theme uses a range of theoretical perspectives to interrogate how environmental change and energy uncertainties are understood and experienced by individuals and communities, across scales from the household to the nation, and the consequences for justice, equality, and resilience.

Work also engages with the construction and negotiation of environmental discourses and knowledges, and their mediation by and through formal and informal institutions and governance. Group members carry out research in many different international contexts, on topics including water governance, drought and flood management, energy poverty and energy access, climate change adaptation, sustainable urban development, and sustainable agricultural systems.
