Assessing Resilience in Social-Ecological Systems: Workbook for Practitioners

Resilience Alliance

Publication Date:

The recently updated workbook for practitioners uses strategic questions and activities to guide in constructing a conceptual model of a social-ecological system – a place along with its associated resources, stakeholders, institutions, and issues. Building on the model, the assessment aids in identifying potential thresholds between alternative systems states and helps reveal what is contributing to or eroding resilience. A resilience assessment can thus provide insight into developing strategies for buffering or coping with both known and unexpected change.
