The concept of resilience in social-ecological systems has attracted considerable recent interest as a foundation for Natural Resource Management (NRM), yet there is a distinct knowledge gap when it comes to the social dimensions of resilience.

This research project focused on developing a regional level social resilience monitoring and reporting framework.

The framework provides guidance to these agencies for both their planning and reporting processes, and evaluation of progress in implementing actions related to the social aspects of their plans. This research moves the management of social resilience, which is an emerging area of interest for both natural resource managers and other agencies, from a set of assumptions to an evidence base.
