Thresholds for resilience in regional communities

The resilience of cotton communities is important to the industry’s performance and sustainability. Through this project, a participatory resilience assessment with regional cotton communities is being undertaken to identify adaptive responses to change and contributions the cotton sector can make. It seeks to identify critical threats, major thresholds or tipping points facing cotton communities as well as opportunities for adaptation. The relationship between specified (related to cotton sector) and general resilience (capacity to cope with uncertainty and change) is also being examined in order to establish indicators of resilience. From this, the possible management responses to reduce future risks can be identified.
