Resilience-Based Approaches and Public Policy: Operational Views
This chapter focuses on operational perspectives in structuring resilience-based approaches and public policy to operationalize resilience. Specifically, this chapter provides a framework for resilience-based approaches from operational perspectives, by examining multi-faceted resilience concepts, studies, and relevant case examples from operational views. Thus, this chapter outlines how a team of individuals can engage in, enhance, or create resilience in communities, organizations, or institutions by tailoring to their own contexts and by taking into account the appropriate scale for programs or projects. Specifically, the framework outlines how to incorporate resilience into projects or programs and how to foster co-production of knowledge for problem-solving in a modern risk society in order to form and function resilience-based public policy. As specified in Chap. 2, given the multi-scalability of resilience concepts, the framework is broadly situated by providing 1) a foundation for resilience-based approaches from operational views based on existing studies, and 2) a framework and practices for resilience-based approaches with principles and operational lenses/components. Following the presentation of the framework, this chapter provides 3) relevant case examples, 4) application of the framework to programs and projects, and 5) policy implication for resilience-based public policy.
