The course introduces basic terminology used by practitioners of disaster risk
management (DRM). In the study of resilience of agricultural systems, two terms
introduced and described are “Agro-ecosystems” and “Social-ecological systems”.
Majority agro-ecological systems are rural. The main thrust in building resilience
of rural social ecological systems is ensuring sustainability of livelihoods, which
underwrites food security of rural communities.
