Introduction to resilience assessment as a tool for transforming social-ecological systems

Attributes for a Resilient World

This text is a list of the nine attributes of a resilient world originally published in Walker and Salt's book on "Resilience Thinking" plus two recent additions that have emerged from the application of resilience assessments. The nine plus two attributes are used to assess the general resilience of a system to disturbance events. Systems with good general resilience properties are more likely to withstand unexpected and novel disturbances, such as those associated with climate change, than systems that have been highly modified to meet efficient production goals.

A Resilience Primer

The resilience primer is based on an entry level text "Resilience Thinking: Sustaining Ecosystems and People in a Changing World" by Brian Walker and David Salt.
