Abstract

It strikes me that resilience indicators and measures ought to be defined in relation to the policy environment for the system in question. It may be that natural systems flip about among a series of stability regions under the influence of natural perturbations, but we would only be concerned about the resilience of such systems if we could see that some policy might change the boundary locations or introduce new perturbations: resilience is a comparative concept.
