Applying resilience thinking: Seven principles for building resilience in social-ecological systems
Over the past decades, few concepts have gained such prominence as  resilience, the capacity of a system to deal with change and continue to develop. There has been an explosion of research into ways to promote or undermine the resilience of 
various systems, be it a landscape, a coastal area or a city. However, the multitude of suggested factors that enhance resilience has led to a somewhat dispersed and fragmented understanding of what is critical for building resilience and how an 
understanding of these factors can be applied. 
 
This publication is a popular summary of the book “Principles for Building Resilience: Sustaining Ecosystem Services in Social-Ecological Systems”, published by 
Cambridge University Press (2014).
