Resilience and Adaptation to Hydrometeorological Hazards
Stockholm University, Stockholm Environment Institute.
2015 (English)In: Hydrometeorological Hazards: Interfacing Science and Policy / [ed] Philippe P. Quevauviller, Wiley-Blackwell, 2015, 291-316 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter discusses the related concepts of resilience and adaptation. The discussion in the chapter emanates from the on-going EU FP7 emBRACE project which used five case studies across Europe to investigate the role, structure and processes of ‘ community resilience’ in the face of flooding, alpine hazards (avalanche and flash flood), heatwave and earthquake. A sustainable livelihoods approach (SLA) is employed as the mechanism by which the complex mix of components and processes of relevance to community resilience is elucidated to hydrometeorological hazards. The chapter introduces a number of lenses through which it can be seen that resilient people, communities and systems require a much wider and more complex frame in which to understand how resilience is produced, reproduced, maintained or lost, than can be provided within even quite advanced socio-technical risk-management systems.
