Abstract

Aims and Objectives: This report presents findings from an action research project conducted in the Scottish Borders between May 2015 and September 2016. The project aimed to:

1) Support a local process of community change through building partnerships, learning and capacity building; and
2) Understand the critical factors involved in facilitating the development of community resilience to climate change to draw out key levers for change nationally.

The project was a collaboration between the University of Dundee, the Scottish Borders Council, Tweed Forum, Southern Uplands Partnership, International Futures Forum and the Scottish Association of Marine Sciences. It worked with three communities that had experience of flooding in the Borders council area and involved bringing together diverse organisations and community members in workshops and other activities.
