Adapting to Change

Our built environment must be able to adapt to – and mitigate against – social and environmental pressures caused by local and global changes.

Core Topics

Supporting innovations that allow built assets to respond to changing external influences and threats, including flooding, temperature change and other natural hazards.

Aiding the development of supply chains that will deliver the homes and other buildings and services needed in informal and low-income communities.

Supporting humanitarian and development organisations engaged in reconstruction in vulnerable communities, and rebuilding livelihoods following traumatic events.
