Vulnerability
W. Neil Adder

The article reviews the   existing knowledge on analytical approaches to vulnerability to environmental change. The purpose is  to propose synergies between research on vulnerability and on resilience of social ecological systems. The vulnerability describes the states of susceptibility to harm, powerlessness, and marginality of both physical and social systems. The analysis of vulnerability   guides for actions to enhance well-being through reduction of risk. The article argues that emerging insights into the resilience of social-ecological systems can add to research agenda on the challenges faced by human environment interactions under stresses caused by global environmental and social change. According to this article the challenges for vulnerability research are to develop robust and credible measures, to incorporate diverse methods that include perceptions of risk and vulnerability, and to incorporate governance research on the mechanisms that mediate vulnerability and promote adaptive action and resilience. These challenges are common to the domains of vulnerability, adaptation and resilience.  They form common ground for consilience and integration. Resources to reduce vulnerablity in times of crisis are largely latent in social institutions. Newly emerging interdisciplinary understanding of vulnerability and resilience demonstrates the co-evolutionary nature of social and natural systems—resilient ecosystems and resilient societies
