...on social-ecological systems for resilient and sustainable futures.

The Resilience Alliance (RA) is primarily a research network that works to facilitate research collaboration and education related to social-ecological resilience. The RA acts as an incubator for innovative science while fostering the development of young scholars and building collaboration among members and centers of research and practice. The RA also publishes the open-access journal Ecology & Society. You can read more about the RA here

For a comprehensive review of resilience research and thinking read "Resilience" by Carl Folke, founding member of the Resilience Alliance. The review paper spans over 40 years of scholarly activity that traces the evolution of foundational concepts and emphasizes how resilience thinking is embedded in the capacity of the biosphere to sustain development and human well-being.

If you are interested in getting involved and joining the RA, we encourage you to get in touch to discuss your research interests and options for participating in the network.
