The Centre for Ecosystem Resilience & Adaptation (ERA) will involve experts from natural, physical, and social sciences and focus on multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary research in order to to determine how ecosystems are or are not resilient under natural and human caused disturbance and to determine how both humans and ecosystems can be adapted to disturbance.
ERA will integrate policy and governance with the technical and quantitative analyses and evidence provided by natural and physical sciences. Embedded within this, ERA will address conservation and restoration in ecosystems, protected areas and a socio-ecological approach to ecosystem stewardship and management.

We are currently in the midst of focusing some efforts on internal (U Waterloo) team building after 5 years of focus solely on international agendas. Our new website – that you’re seeing here – is one early step in that process. We’ll be posting some of the past highlights here as well as new events.
