This conference will take place in Montpellier, France, May 4-8, 2014. It is organized by the “French node” of the Resilience Alliance network (CIRAD - CNRS - IRSTEA- INRA), Agropolis International and their partners of the campus of Montpellier. Building on the highly successful first two conferences (in Stockholm & in Phoenix), Resilience 2014 will create an arena for exchanges and discussions articulating concepts & practices of adaptation, transformation and development.
Resilience 2014 seeks to explore multiple perspectives on social and ecological change and the multiple links between resilience thinking and development issues. Reports by major development players are using resilience and social and ecological system frameworks as key concepts to guide and shape strategies on issues such as biodiversity conservation, urban growth, human security, and well-being. Additionally the conference will explore relationships between different scientific approaches to social and ecological change. Ecosystem management, planning and development are all being approached by diverse research fields, many of which are pursuing concepts that resonate with a resilience approach.
