Resilience 201414 May 2014
Theme: Resilience and Development: Mobilizing for Transformation
To encourage wide-ranging debate on the transformation, adaptation and development of societies in the face of change, Resilience 2014 aimed to strengthen and explore the links between the many examples and visions of the resilience of our societies and their environment, whether they come from the academic world or the world of development. The resilience of a social and ecological system (SES) refers to the way in which societies and their environment adapt or change in response to climate, economic and social change, including financial and food crises.
Some of the questions tackled by Resilience 2014:
- To what extent can an SES adapt? When does disruption become too extreme and generate trigger irreversible changes?
- Conversely, how can an SES transform itself and change development track so as to escape from an undesirable situation, such as poverty traps?
- Is the resilience of some the resilience of others?
- What role do knowledge and skills play in these processes?
Resilience 2014 is organized by the “French node” of the Resilience Alliance network (CIRAD – CNRS – IRSTEA- INRA), Agropolis International and their partners of the campus of Montpellier, and built on the highly successful first two conferences in Stockholm and in Phoenix.
