This project looks at how climate change may affect the housing sector, and uses three case studies to illustrate how climate change adaptation can be part of delivering positive outcomes.

The case studies:

  • demonstrate how sustainable urban drainage can unlock development sites as well as manage the water within them;
  • highlight how sustainable urban drainage and water conservation measures can also facilitate community capacity building; and
  • show how retrofitting micro-renewables and thermal storage can reduce fuel poverty and keep homes warm and dry.

These are important examples to illustrate the co-benefits of taking action to adapt to climate change.
