Four case studies which focus on capacities, community engagement and governance in the context of community resilience to climate change.

The concept of community resilience to climate change in the UK has a diverse range of meanings and associated activities. This report, developed by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF), presents four case studies of actions at the local level designed to improve resilience of communities to some aspect of climate change. They have been examined using a frame of community resilience to climate change with a focus on capacities, community engagement and governance.

This report is supplementary to Community resilience to climate change: an evidence review, published by JRF, which draws on the case studies for illustrative examples.
