In this article for the Emergency Services Times, Dr Andrew McClelland explores how local resilience partnerships can enhance societal resilience with limited resources; and discusses the work of the National Consortium for Societal Resilience at the University of Manchester in co-developing stakeholder driven solutions to this ambitious task. The result has been the participatory and iterative co-production of an step-by-step approach set out in the newly published and freely available NCSR Strategy and Manual to create a Local Resilience Capability, written by the NCSR team including Professor Duncan Shaw, David Powell and Róisín Jordan.

The University of Manchester will be hosting the Second Conference on Societal Resilience on 4th March 2024.
