Ecosystem and Territorial Resilience: A Geoprospective Approach provides a full review of the geoprospective approach and how it can be used in planning for and implementing climate resilience measures. The geoprospective approach is a way to predict and assess for environmental risks, and is a comprehensive method for identifying and addressing potential climate change impacts. In addition to the main concepts and methods of this approach, the book presents applications and case studies for different spatio-temporal scales and problems related to the degradation of ecosystem services, as well as applying the geoprospective approach to environmental planning. Ecosystem and Territorial Resilience: A Geoprospective Approach offers an interdisciplinary perspective, tying in concepts and techniques from geography, including spatial analysis methods, modelling, and GIS, to address issues of ecological impacts, urban risk and resilience, land use changes, coastal impacts, and sustainable development. This book is a unique and integral resource for policy makers, environmental managers, scientists, engineers, consultants, and graduate students interested in various aspects of climate change impact. Introduces the geoprospective approach to assess the impact of global changes on ecosystems, and potential risk situations for ecosystems and society Includes geographical techniques such as spatial analysis methods, modelling, and GIS to address various climate change issues Provides case studies as well as interviews with planners and policy makers regarding their views on territorial planning and expectations

Increasingly, cracks are appearing in the capacity of communities, ecosystems, and landscapes to provide the goods and services that sustain our planet's well-being. The response from most quarters has been for "more of the same" that created the situation in the first place: more control, more intensification, and greater efficiency. "Resilience thinking" offers a different way of understanding the world and a new approach to managing resources. It embraces human and natural systems as complex entities continually adapting through cycles

Over the past few decades, the frequency and severity of natural and human-induced disasters have increased across Asia. These disasters lead to substantial loss of life, livelihoods and community assets, which not only threatens the pace of socio-economic development, but also undo hard-earned gains. Extreme events and disasters such as floods, droughts, heat, fire, cyclones and tidal surges are known to be exacerbated by environmental changes including climate change, land-use changes and natural resource degradation. Increasing climate variability and multi-dimensional

In the same realm as social ecology, industrial ecology and the circular economy, a new interdisciplinary field is growing: territorial ecology. Based on the analysis of the metabolism of human societies at a local level, it helps us diagnose a socioecosystem. This diagnostic is not only based on what is circulating, but also on how it is organized and why. Who is at the origin of a flow? What are their motivations?
