We are working with the Ullswater community to develop a more resilient local area, better able to withstand shocks and adapt to climate change.

In July 2013 we ran a workshop looking at the factors that make the Ullswater community resilient. These included the qualities and resources that enable the community to recover after major events like flooding. The workshop went on to investigate what sorts of things you could use to measure this ability.
This work is part of a larger European Union funded study into Community Resilience, the outcome of which will be a framework for measuring community resilience to natural hazards in a way that can be applied in different areas and at different scales across Europe.
