A new LGiU report, Resilience in Practice, looks at what resilience means for local authorities. The paper argues that building an understanding of resilience at the local level will enable better responses to the big challenges we face, and offers guidance for councils to facilitate their thinking about the subject.
Resilience and adaptation strategies are only as useful as the effect they have in places and communities. They need to bring about holistic change in the way a place actually functions. Local Authorities should join with communities and individuals as partners to make places more resilient, building on existing programmes learning from communities, and using their assets effectively.
