Last month, the ARCC Assembly explored issues and challenges arising from research to promote a well-adapted and resilient built environment and infrastructure network. The ARCC network (Adaptation and Resilience in the Context of Change) is hosted within UKCIP and brings together research projects with a specific focus on built environment and infrastructure in the UK. Over 120 participants heard from a variety of speakers: from European, national and local policy makers, from practitioners; and from researchers working on a diverse portfolio of research projects.
Topics covered included citizens’ aspirations, handling disruption to transport systems, indoor air quality and maintaining energy supply systems. The ARCC website contains presentations and video from individual sessions, while blogs provide personal perspectives on discussions.
