Community Resilience and Environmental Transitions Hardback
This book discusses the resilience of communities in both developed and developing world contexts.
It investigates the notion of `resilience' and the challenges faced by local communities around the world to deal with disturbances (natural hazards or human-made) that may threaten their long-term survival.
Using global examples, specific emphasis is placed on how learning processes, traditions, policies and politics affect the resilience of communities and what constraints and opportunities exist for communities to raise resilience levels.
