The project involved three distinct strands, all of which exploit recently available data from large-scale household surveys to contribute to a greater understanding of the future prospects for retirement resources in Britain:
- The evolution of wealth and financial behaviour in Britain since 2006
- Differences in economic circumstances across successive cohorts
- Simulating the future distribution of incomes, and income-poverty, among older people

Climate change is one of the greatest risks facing our world today. Addressing it will require multi-faceted solutions.
