Resilience, broadly construed as the ability to successfully deal with change, is a characteristic of individuals, communities, and ecosystem., We depend on ecosystems for our survival and in turn impact these ecosystems from the local to the global level. Building resilience into an ecosystem means working to support the health and functions of associated habitats, organisms and processes. For that reason, both the Aichi Biodiversity targets and the Sustainable Development Goals include resilient ecosystems as a key priority for action.
