The Transformation We Want: Working Toward a Global Policy Environment for Resilient Futures


Think Piece Series: Linking Resilience Thinking and Transformative Change


In this think piece series, experts discuss examples of policy reform and their potential to foster transformative change and social-ecological resilience for sustainability. They unpack the notions of transformation and resilience and analyses the politics at play, in order to identify environmentally sustainable and socially equitable solutions.

The series contributes to a better understanding of the political processes underlying a range of policy approaches and reforms, and aims to inform global policy debates about the kinds of change processes that promote sustainability and resilience.

The series was launched to coincide with the Resilience 2017 Conference, Resilience Frontiers for Global Sustainability, hosted by the Stockholm Resilience Centre and the Resilience Alliance in Stockholm, Sweden in August 2017 at which UNRISD hosted a panel entitled The Transformation We Want: Working Toward a Global Policy Environment for Resilient Futures.
