Searching for Resilience in Sustainable Develomentsearches for the ways in which resilience may be created within the web of ecological, socio-economic and cultural systems that make up the world in which we live and upon which all living creatures depend. The authors embark upon a learning journey exploring both robust and fragile systems and asking questions of groups and individuals actively involved in building or maintaining resilience. The book makes resilience real by showing both how it works and could work as well as the central importance of education and learning to the central project of fashioning a sustainable world. Through a series of wide ranging interviews with conservationists, community activists, business people, government officials, NGO workers and academics, the authors give voice to the many different approaches to thinking of and building resilience that may otherwise stay rooted in and confined by specific disciplinary, professional or spatial contexts. The authors and their interviewees explore the practical and successful ways in which resilience may be established. They summarize the key meanings of resilience and emphasize the paramount importance of social learning and creative co-operation in the success of conservation and sustainable development practices throughout the world. This book is ideal for students and researchers working in the fields of conservation, sustainable development, education, systems thinking, and development studies where the relationship between human society and the environmental are of crucial significance. It will also be of great interest to NGOs and government officers whose interests and responsibilities focus on conserving or reconstructing biodiversity and system resilience.
