About the Authors
  • As both the societies and the world in which we live face increasingly rapid and turbulent changes, the concept of resilience has become an active and important research area. Reflecting the very latest research, this book provides a critical review of the ways in which resilience of social-ecological systems, and the ecosystem services they provide, can be enhanced. With contributions from leaders in the field, the chapters are structured around seven key principles for building resilience: maintain diversity and redundancy; manage connectivity; manage slow variables and feedbacks; foster complex adaptive systems thinking; encourage learning; broaden participation; and promote polycentric governance. The authors assess the evidence in support of these principles, discussing their practical application and outlining further research needs. Intended for researchers, practitioners and graduate students, this is an ideal resource for anyone working in resilience science and for those in the broader fields of sustainability science, environmental management and governance.

    • Provides an introduction to key principles for building resilience in society and the environment, discussing their function and practical applications
    • Synthesises insights from across the natural and social sciences, providing a comprehensive interdisciplinary overview and drawing on in-depth case studies
    • Intended for researchers and graduate students in the environmental, governance and sustainability fields, as well as applied researchers and practitioners working at the science-policy interface
