1. Advancing Resilience Practice : Bridging social-ecological resilience theory and sustainable development practice

The number of cases of resilience practice are growing, including resilience assessments, planning and action, but there are still few scientific studies and even less synthesis across cases. LÄS MER

Since the network is mobile and often sparse in terms of node contacts, nodes store messages in their buffers, carrying them, and forwarding them upon node encounters. LÄS MER
