Environment, Energy and Resilience

This pathway explores the interface between security, energy and environment by engaging the latest critical thinking on risk management, critical infrastructure, public regulation, policy studies and the environmental sciences. We aim to train social science researchers who understand the impacts of living with environmental change, the uncertainties of environmental change for energy and food security and the diverse responses needed to foster behaviours, practices and policies that promote sustainability and resilience.
