This blog was created as part of an Island Press project on resilience supported by funding from the Kresge Foundation. It is primarily intended to provide project stakeholders and others with a sample of interesting ideas and resources encountered in exploring how concepts of (urban) resilience are being defined and deployed at the onset of serious climate change impacts. Presently, we are following two main threads of exploration. One is resilience as it is addressed in relation to disaster risk management and climate change adaptation discourses and planning frameworks; the other as it is defined and interpreted in social-ecological resilience theory, particularly by social scientists.
