Abstract
The joint research project “social-ecological system resilience and adaptive co-management: an experimental pioneer study in Taiwan” aims to study resilience and adaptive co-management governance of the studied focal social-ecological system. Based on the social-ecological system resilience thinking framework, we look to achieve this objective in the Tanungdafu reforestation area of Hualien and the nearby local communities. We describe the social-ecological system, explore cross-scale and cross level dynamics, and assess system resilience and governance. The research, including five research sub-projects, has struck research findings and identified key governance issues that should be addressed. Furthermore, we suggest that current research findings should be feedbacked into the governance system, including governmental authorities, communities, NGOs, and academic community. Stages 4 and 5 of the Resilience Assessment Framework should be further advanced, in order to promote learning as well as the adaptation process, thereby building an adaptive co-management governance regime. A future research work will be carried out by the MOST Sustainability Joint Project, “social-ecological system resilience and adaptive co-management: an experimental pioneer study in Taiwan MOST103-2621-M-259-”.
