The Resilience Problem: Part 1

Keenan, Jesse M.

This critical essay examines the contradictions in the dominant popular discourse that dangerously perpetuate the status quo through the processes of resilience. The essay posits a framework that balances resilience, and its elasticity to the status quo, with the necessity to consider transformative adaptation. The essay seeks to highlight the conflicts and synergies that define the relationship between resilience and adaptation to climate change.
