This lecture explores the various manifestations of resilience in American domestic and international policy. Based on the six branches of categorical resilience, the lecture identifies the wide-ranging implications of resilience across dozens of federal agencies, departments, and programs. Whether it is mainstreaming within conservation biology at the National Park Service or novel governance structures within the National Security Council, the lecture introduces the practical applications and challenges associated with resilience, as well as adaptation science. The lecture concludes with a preview of federal climate policies that are currently being developed.
This event is hosted by MDes Risk & Resilience.
