Topic: Principles From Ecological Resilience Theory
Speaker: Bruce Milne
Sponsor: Tandus/Centiva

Built and natural systems receive shocks of various sizes and durations, yet it is not economical to build systems that are robust to all possible shocks. Resilience is the ability of complex systems to respond adaptively to shocks. This course covers concepts from recent theories of resilience and reviews empirical studies that support the theory while identifying the challenge of developing better diagnostics. Take home lessons relate to having a precautionary appreciation for antecedent conditions that inadvertently compromise resilience. The course considers the principle of working within the capacity of a system, rather than from a standpoint of subsidizing apparent scarcities, as a way of dodging damage from unforeseen shocks.
