The joint research project is being carried out by the National Centre of Resilience, University of Glasgow Dumfries Campus and the university’s School of Veterinary Medicine and is all about understanding what farmers have to cope with, and how managing competing issues can affect a farm’s resilience and wellbeing.
They are keen to find out more about the impact on farmers of operating in an increasingly uncertain environment, including the repeated impacts of chaotic weather patterns and the uncertain policy landscape.
The hope is to identify ways to support farms to develop their own resilience to cope with multiple challenges.
Dr Helen Baxter, from the National Centre for Resilience, wants to hear from anyone interested in taking part. She can be contacted by email at Helen.Baxter@glasgow.ac.uk or call 01387 702036.
