The Decentralised Water Technologies programme aims to deliver a step-change in water provision and wastewater management. The programme is developing new and improved systems that are fit for purpose and are low carbon. The research is a response to the pressures of climate change and the desire for sustainable communities, as well as to address the limitations of current systems. Research for the communities theme within the programme will investigate how to ensure that both the decision-making processes about new systems and the new systems themselves are fair, equitable, and the best fit for the places they will be used. The research will be led by experts in socio-technical transitions, social and environmental justice, and community and involve island community partners on the Isles of Iona, Arran, Jura, Barra & Vatersay.
