Community Resilience

Community Resilience is a key factor in the stability of social-ecological systems. Characteristics of resilient systems include redundancy, diversity, efficiency, autonomy, strength, interdependence, adaptability, and collaboration. In the face of uncertain ecological, economic, political and social dynamics, change must be based on community-wide understanding of the issues, a willingness of all parties to commit to action, and collaborative solutions that recognize the challenges and opportunities of diverse perspectives. Sustainable community, business, or resource development in a highly interconnected world depends on community involvement, whether defined by geographical boundaries, common needs, markets, customers, social issues or other commonalities. Using these communities as a source for innovation leverages new opportunities.

ECO helps you develop the collaborative partnerships, common understanding, cohesion and flexibility required to foster innovation, resilience and sustainability in the face of uncertainty and change.
