Preface
The Environmental Advisory Council of the Swedish Governmentserves as a forum for discussions on environmental policies andsustainable development. Established in 1968, it has played animportant role over the years as a platform for debate on strategicenvironmental issues.Policy-makers need information from many sources fortheir decision-making. For issues related to sustainabledevelopment, the scientific community will provide essentialbackground information. The Council regularly invites researchersand other experts to its meetings to give input on the differentthemes addressed. The Council also acts as a link to the scientificcommunity during Sweden’s preparations for the forthcomingWorld Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) inJohannesburg.The Council has invited members of the scientificcommunity to draw up synthesis reports on some of the themesaddressed. The present report Resilience and SustainableDevelopment: Building Adaptive Capacity in a World of Transformation is an up-to-date synthesis of case studies andrecent insights on resilience and vulnerability in social-ecologicalsystems. These insights have been developed in the context of emerging theories of complex systems characterised by uncertaintyand surprise. The report argues the case for developingmanagement strategies that support the resilience of ecosystems,which because of their production of goods and services, are vitalfor social systems. Policy-makers, as well as scientists, must takenote of the necessity to understand the interdependence of coupledsocial and ecological systems. The report was written by a groupof internationally renowned scientists from the scientific networkResilience Alliance. The authors are entirely responsible for thecontents of the report and any conclusions presented.
