Resilience.org, a program of the Post Carbon Institute (PCI) formerly known as Energy Bulletin, covers peak oil and energy, resource depletion and related issues. The site is a great hub for networking and information. It provides clear definitions of the issues, a section for groups engaged in building resilience, as well as user-generated and PCI articles, reports and other resources.
“Resilience is a rich and complex concept. It has roots in systems theory, and it has a variety of interpretations and applications including for ecosystems management, disaster preparedness, and even community planning. Our interpretation is based on the work of the Resilience Alliance, the leading scholarly body working on the resilience of social-ecological systems. In that field, resilience is commonly defined as the capacity of a system to absorb disturbance and re-organize while undergoing change so as to still retain essentially the same function, structure, identity, and feedbacks.”
