The research design is organised around three main research questions, each anchored in theoretical debates and bodies of academic scholarship:
i. Heat, Inequality and Gender
ii. Cool Infrastructures
iii. Thermal Practices, Needs and Capacities
Cool Infrastructures is a collaboration between research institutions in Scotland, Cameroon, Pakistan, India, Indonesia, France, Germany and Singapore.
