Abstract

Rural community resilience in Scotland is a multifaceted and complex issue that includes components of readiness and ability to respond to emergencies, long-term issues related to climate change as well as issues around population, civic and economic decline. This research builds on ongoing research around community resilience in Scotland around social and economic issues, which project team members call everyday resilience. The purpose of this research is to identify areas of Scotland that have a high resilience to threats of everyday resilience through the identification of infrastructures associated with everyday resilience. Specifically, project team members seek to answer the following research question: What everyday resilience facilities are available to those living in rural places to aid in promoting resilient communities in Scotland; and, to what extent do emergency and everyday resilience centres exist across rural Scotland?
