Overview

It is becoming ever more important that energy programmes are reliable against changes in the climate. Ways of providing people access to energy whilst minimising impact on the environment and natural resources are now considered vital for sustainable development.

This edition of Boiling Point seeks to address some of the challenges in making this provision, and it presents examples of related initiatives being implemented and explored to enhance the adaptive capacity, resilience and energy security for households and communities against climate change.

We hope you enjoy this issue and we look forward to hearing your impressions and suggestions at BoilingPoint@HEDON.info,
