Originally the concept of resilience is derived from ecology. It stands for the resilience of an ecological or socio-ecological system which is able to react to a risk without changing its basic characteristics. A resilient ecosystem won’t collapse when shocks occur. It has the ability to rebuild itself and go back to the initial situation.
Resilience in an ecological sense, however, will not be considered in this blog. This article served to explain the history of the resilience concept.
