Scotland’s National Centre for Resilience (NCR) works to ensure communities across the country are fully and adequately prepared for natural hazards such as flooding and landslides.
The NCR aims to improve understanding of the impact of natural hazards and provide support to responders and communities including practical tool kits and resources for those who operate on the ground.
The Centre supports the interface between practitioners, academia and policy-makers with a view to informing better practice in dealing with emergencies and providing research capabilities to meet the needs of the resilience community.
Located on the Crichton Campus in Dumfries, the NCR brings together strategic partners including:
Scottish Government, Met Office, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS), Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA), Police Scotland, Scottish Funding Council (SFC), Scottish Flooding Forum, Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation, University of Glasgow, Transport Scotland, British Geological Survey, Natural Hazards Partnership.
