Abstract

The concept of community resilience to climate change in the UK has a diverse range of meanings and associated activities. This review of evidence and practice explores this varied and contested field to build the evidence base and help support the development of community resilience to climate change. The report shows (a) the variety of actions being carried out across the UK that can be classed as improving resilience of communities to climate change; (b) the barriers and facilitators to improving resilience to climate change for communities; and (c) the value of a framework to understand resilience of communities to climate change that emphasises existing capacities of communities, engagement and empowerment of citizens, and multi-level governance.
