Investigating Community Resilence with Bob and Dave - Part 2

In this second of a two part discussion Bob and Dave begin by recognizing how widespread talk of resilience is becoming. In the effort prevent the concept from becoming hackneyed, the two zero in on two key points of distinction:  resilience is not the same as sustainability nor is resilience the same as efficiency. In fact resilience is the opposite of single outcome efficiencies. Resilient eco-social communities will not be completely completely or fully efficient. Pockets of inefficiencies and unused resources often become the locus of resilience when changes in the environment (natural and man-made environments) demand adaption.
