A central rationale of these efforts is ensuring that local communities and associated social and ecological systems can be more resilient to risks from extreme events, particularly those emerging from ongoing environmental degradation and increasing climate change. What are the conditions for enhanced community resiliency and the connection between resilience practices and the social and ecological systems in the Jamaica Bay region?
