Building resilient institutional infrastructure for development in remote rural areas

This report was prepared following the 2012 Arkleton Trust Fellowship award and submitted to the 2012 Arkleton Trust seminar by Jane Atterton and Kendra Turnbull.  

It looks at the communities of Glendale in North Northumberland and Langholm in Dumfries and Galloway.  Both communities saw development initiatives set up in the mid 1990's although for different reasons.  Both communities are perceived as peripheral in their regional contexts and  choosing communities in England and Scotland offers an interesting opportunity for cross-border comparison.

Solar panel project for the Lower Kolyma region of the Republic of Sakha-Yakutia, Russia: A four year collaboration

This report describes the events which have unfolded in the attempt to train two candidates from Siberian communities to become solar engineers. This training is devised and conducted by the Barefoot College, an organisation based in India which is primarily involved in rural development. The training process lasts a period of six months and is designed to result in a candidate becoming fully proficient in the construction and maintenance of their community’s own solar powered light project. The aim of this venture was to take solar light technology to the nomadic reindeer herders of the Chukchi Nation (Turvaurgin and Nutendli communities) located in the Lower Kolyma region of the Republic of Sakha-Yakutia, Russia.
