This research project considers the relation between individual and community perceptions of rapid change and scarce resources and the political dimensions that shape such contexts. Ethnographic in approach, it explores the factors that affect household resilience to urban water scarcity in an informal settlement in Lima, Peru. The project makes contributions to the literatures on resilience, (water) scarcity, volatility and rapid urbanisation. Methodologically, it examines the potential of incorporating ethnographic approaches in resilience studies.
