Focusing on groundwater supplies, RIGSS explores how the interplay between environmental resources, social systems and behavioural choices affects the use of groundwater supplies. It focuses on the case of Nigeria as a means of piloting research approaches and exploring wider conceptual issues. The approach combines perspectives on the interplay of factors influencing choice and behaviour including: the nature of the hydrogeological resource, the perceptions of identified actors, actors’ engagement with news and information resources, socio--‐economic and political factors, psychological factors and the role of coping and survival strategies in the face of shocks and anticipated events.
