The recently updated workbook for practitioners (download below) uses strategic questions and activities to assess resilience in social-ecological systems. The approach involves constructing a conceptual model of a system that includes resources, stakeholders, and institutions, and identifies potential thresholds between alternative systems states in order to provide insight into factors that build or erode a system's resilience. A resilience assessment can thus help with developing strategies for coping with uncertainty and change.
Online resilience assessment resources include examples of key concepts applied in a variety of different systems, an annotated bibliography, and an open projects database.
Also available is a workbook for Scientists that is based on case-study comparisons of regional SESs and builds on an earlier framework (Walker et al. 2002). It is intended for those already familiar with basic concepts of resilience and system dynamics.
