Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

This short case study has been produced in order to contribute to the NCR’s aim of supporting community resilience. The intention is that some insights into the lessons from hurricane Katrina and the emergency response to it, have merit for Scotland, and for ongoing efforts to increase community resilience to natural hazards. This brief document is designed to support Government in thinking about the adequacy of current policy as it relates to resilience and to support local agencies and communities to consider how they might operate and the adequacy of their operation were they to be adversely affected by a similarly devastating natural event.
