Scotland’s Rural and Island Futures

The Scotland’s Rural and Island Futures project at The James Hutton Institute is exploring how rural and island residents and businesses are responding to a time of unprecedented change, and how they can be supported to realise a just, sustainable and resilient future.

The research team is using a range of methods to find out how different people and businesses in different places are being affected by recent challenges such as Covid-19, Brexit, the climate crisis and the cost-of-living crisis. Our aim is to facilitate impactful policy interventions where they are most needed, and which are sensitive to the particularities of place.
