    • RCS Renewal Join the Discussion…it’s time to have your say… Topic 2. Exploring the Resilience issues in the North East region. At this point in the renewal of the North East RCS we are focussing on key resilience issues for the North East . Have we identified all the Resilience issues Resilience issues are those that are significant enough that that effect the identity changing them or their general condition would threaten the and function of the identity or character of the landscape. landscapes of the North East? Are there other Resilience issues that can be added? What are they? www.yoursaynecma.com.auThe Resilience of the North East Region “ Diverse, healthy landscapes; vibrant communities ”
    • HOW DOES RESILIENCE THINKING WORK…? “Resilience is a measure of a system’s capacity to cope with change while retaining essentially the same structure and function.” Resilience thinking is a new framework for helping communities to understand how their catchments work, and where and how they can best intervene to keep LANDSCAPE SYSTEMS operating effectively.Management can then be designed to:- Assessing the resilience of a system involvesMaintain a functioning system either by identifying changes to the CRITICALREMAINING WITHIN THRESHOLDS or DYNAMICS that underpin and influence theTRANSFORM (enhance) systems to a delivery of desired values, goods and servicesdesirable (or least undesirable) alternative of a focus system …state. Managing for resilience involves PROMOTING DIVERSITY & FLEXIBILITY in those systems, and building the CAPACITY TO ADAPT & CHANGE.
