The conference Resilience 2014 “Resilience and Development: Mobilizing for Transformation” will take place in Montpellier, France, May 4-8, 2014. It is the third time the Resilience Alliance Network organize such an conference, with previous conferences in Stockholm and Phoenix. One of the highlighted themes is Analyzing and promoting change and transformation. These papers will focus on changes in social-ecological systems ranging from passive adaptation to proactive transformation.
“There is an increasing interest in the transformability of social ecological systems i.e., the capacity of society to change the system’s state variables when current trajectories become untenable. But a critical dilemma faces humankind: How can more equitable and beneficial social development paths be stimulated in light of these challenges?”
