  1. 1. Human Dimensions of the Resilience Shift Alexa Bruce
  2. 2. Adaptive…. Management Co-management Governance Adaptive governance is a strategy to mediate the social conflict that plagues adaptive management of complex ecosystems (Chaffin et al. 2014)
  3. 3. Good Governance vs Adaptive Governance • Polycentric • Inclusive • Nested • Knowledge Generation and Learning • Collaboration • Trust • Leadership Lockwood, 2010 Dietz, et al. 2003, Folke 2005
  4. 4. City Water Resilience Framework – our pioneer cities Mexico City, Mexico Amman, Jordan Hull, UK Miami, USA Cape Town, South Africa
  5. 5. Early Findings What are we all working towards?
  6. 6. Early Findings Too many plans and not enough implementation
  7. 7. Current Thinking 1. Understand the system 2. Assess water resilience 3. Deep analysis and Action Plan 4. Implement Action Plan 5. Monitor plan
  8. 8. Current Thinking 1. Understand the system 2. Assess water resilience 3. Deep analysis and Action Plan 4. Implement Action Plan 5. Monitor plan Consensus on system definition and interdependencies Consensus on water resilience vulnerabilities Governance gap analysis and options to address them Consensus on implementation priorities, and how to get there Actions completed Lessons learnt
  9. 9. Scale-matching “Any lasting adaptive governance regime must operate on a scale with the best “fit” between social and ecological components of the system” (Rijke et al. 2012) The key social connectors critical to the alignment of social/ ecological boundaries is leadership, coordination of actors across multiple levels through networks and activate social memory (Olsson et al. 2007)
  10. 10. Next Steps Develop governance web tool to support steps 1 and 2 Develop indicators for governance that are flexible and adaptable • These must include aspects that are subjective, objective and relational (Folke, 2016) 1. Understand the system 2. Assess overall Resilience with CWRF 3. Analysis. Generate Alternatives and Action Plan 4. Implement Action Plan 5. Monitor plan
