Disaster management
This scenario covers an initiative to improve the state of historic buildings in a town.

Restoring buildings is very costly and sufficient public funds are rarely available to meet the demand. In this scenario the local authorities allocate funding for three years to start up an independent project providing technical assistance and taking initiatives. As well as administering grants to pump-prime quality repairs by private owners, the project undertakes a wide range of education programmes aimed at raising awareness and stimulating initiatives by both private individuals and community groups.

When the funding period expires, the project is converted into a development trust controlled by local people. As skills and interest grow, the trust takes on a broader and more far-reaching role
