Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: " Collaborative Resilience helps us understand why and how communities facing violence, natural hazards, and resource decline can adapt and transform, even in the face of terrible trauma. Vulnerable communities do not just 'bounce back'; they must find ways of building trust and structuring cooperation. Drawing on examples from Africa, Asia, Latin America and North America, Goldstein and his co-authors show us how collaborative interaction, when facilitated properly, can create safe spaces in which assumptions and relationships can be revised, reframed, and restored." -- Lawrence Susskind , Ford Professor of Urban and Environmental Planning, MIT.

Crisis--whether natural disaster, technological failure, economic collapse, or shocking acts of violence--can offer opportunities for collaboration, consensus building, and transformative social change. Communities often experience a surge of collective energy and purpose in the aftermath of crisis. Rather than rely on government and private-sector efforts to deal with crises through prevention and mitigation, we can harness post-crisis forces for recovery and change through innovative collaborative planning.
Drawing on recent work in the fields of planning and natural resource management, this book examines a range of efforts to enhance resilience through collaboration, describing communities that have survived and even thrived by building trust and interdependence. These collaborative efforts include environmental assessment methods in Cozumel, Mexico; the governance of a "climate protected community" in the Blackfoot Valley of Montana; fisheries management in Southeast Asia's Mekong region; and the restoration of natural fire regimes in U.S. forests.
In addition to describing the many forms that collaboration can take--including consensus processes, learning networks, and truth and reconciliation commissions--the authors argue that collaborative resilience requires redefining the idea of resilience itself. A resilient system is not just discovered through good science; it emerges as a community debates and defines ecological and social features of the system and appropriate scales of activity. Poised between collaborative practice and resilience analysis, collaborative resilience is both a process and an outcome of collective engagement with social-ecological complexity.
