Upcoming Events for 2018

Resilience of Social-Ecological Systems

Date: Tuesday 23 October 2018
Time: 10:30am
Venue: Civil Eng J05, Conference Room 438

Presenter: Dr Steven Lade, Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University, Sweden

Resilience is emerging as a key concept that researchers and organisations use to understand and deal with many of the problems facing contemporary environment and society. The flavour of resilience that deals with ecological and social-ecological systems is strongly rooted in concepts of complex adaptive systems. In this talk, I will provide a brief overview of the history and ongoing development of resilience in different fields. I will then use my own work to illustrate three areas in which the resilience of social-ecological systems is commonly studied: natural resource management, poverty alleviation, and the dynamics of the Earth system.
