  1. 1. Advancing Resilience Practice : Bridging social-ecological resilience theory and sustainable development practice

    Author : My M. Sellberg; Garry D. Peterson; Albert V. Norström; Sara Borgström; Dirk Roux; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Complex adaptive systems; Local and regional planning; Resilience thinking; Social-ecological systems; Transdisciplinarity; Sustainability Science; vetenskap om hållbar utveckling;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the application of resilience thinking in different real-world settings and research-practice interfaces, for example in the context of natural resource management, local government planning and food systems. The number of cases of resilience practice are growing, including resilience assessments, planning and action, but there are still few scientific studies and even less synthesis across cases.

    Abstract : The practices related to the growing, harvesting, preparation, and celebration of food over millennia have given rise to diverse biocultural landscapes the world over. These landscapes – rich in biological and cultural diversity – are often characterised by persistent poverty, and, as such, are often the target of development interventions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Rooting for forest resilience : Implications of climate and land-use change on the tropical rainforests

    Author : Chandrakant Singh; Ingo Fetzer; Lan Wang-Erlandsson; Ruud van der Ent; Axel Kleidon; Stockholms universitet; []

    Abstract : Tropical rainforests in the Amazon and Congo River basins and their climate are mutually dependent. Evaporation from these forests help regulate the regional and global water cycle. Furthermore, these rainforests themselves depend on precipitation to sustain their structure and functions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Designing for Resilience : Navigating Change in Service Systems

    Abstract : Services are prone to change in the form of expected and unexpected variations and disruptions, more so given the increasing interconnectedness and complexity of service systems today. These changes require service systems to be resilient and designed to adapt, to ensure that services continue to work smoothly. READ MORE

  5. 5. Risk and resilience : An integrated approach for navigating a complex world
