About this book

Rapid environmental change calls for individuals and societies with an ability to transform interactions with each other and the ecosystems upon which we depend. Adaptive capacity - the ability of a social-ecological system to be robust to disturbances and capable of responding to changes - is increasingly recognized as a critical attribute of multi-level environmental governance. This volume offers an interdisciplinary and integrative perspective on an emerging area of applied scholarship, with contributions from internationally recognized researchers and practitioners.
