Seven principles for building resilience in social-ecological systems: 1)Maintain diversity and redundancy 2)Manage connectivity 3)Manage slow variables and feed backs 4)Foster complex adaptive systems thinking 5)Encourage learning 6)Broaden participation 7)Promote polycentric governance systems

Resilience Four aspects: 1.Latitude: the maximum amount a system can be changed before losing it ability to recover 2.Resistance: the ease or difficulty of changing the system; how “resistant” it is to being changed 3.Precariousness: how close the current state of the system is to the limit 4.Panarchy: how the above three attributes are influenced by the state of dynamics of the system at scales above and below the scale of interest Bayouwoman.com b.wagner
Adaptability Actors can: 1.Move the current state of a system away from or closer to the threshold 2.Make the threshold more difficult or easier to reach 3.Manage cross-scale interaction to avoid or generate loss of resilience 4. Managing for single state equilibrium can be a paradox mauricekerrigan.com
