Watershed Community Resilience Planning

Summary

Resilience planning (resilience of complex adaptive systems / social-ecological systems) goes beyond just hazard resilience. Includes transitioning to ecological, social, economic and governance resilience and sustainability at the local watershed community level. Community-based approach requires increasing literacy of resilience science (including ecological and social systems/ecosystem services), integrates local ecological knowledge with expert knowledge, creates a shared community story and local green map, and adaptive management/governance approaches with learning feedbacks.
