Abstract

The paper informs on the emerging innovative solutions and practice in strengthening the resilience of architectural and urban heritage in Scotland in the context of key global risks such as peak oil, climate change, growing global population and species extinction. It informs on the recent policies of the Scottish Government and the actions of its agencies in enabling climate change mitigation and adaptation, as well as community engagement in identifying most appropriate local solutions with regards to the responsible use of natural resources and the preservation and sensitive reuse of the built environment, including heritage buildings. Key outputs of two collaborative projects of researchers, industry and communities are presented to inform on novel approaches to the development of innovative solutions for sustainable building design and refurbishment, integration of low carbon infrastructure systems in the built environment and community engagement in decision-making.
