Stockholm Resilience Centre at Stockholm University (Sweden) is committed to contributing to the global alliance of Earth System Governance Research Centres. Stockholm Resilience Centre advances transdisciplinary research for governance of social-ecological systems with a special emphasis on resilience - the ability to deal with change and continue to develop.
Stockholm Resilience Centre will in particular contribute research on the theme of Adaptiveness. We plan to do this through ongoing theoretical and empirical work on adaptive governance - i.e. the social, institutional, economical and ecological foundations of multilevel governance modes that are successful in building resilience for the vast challenges posed by global change, and coupled complex adaptive social-ecological systems.
