About Us

The Center for Resilient Communities (CRC) was established in 2014 to address the social, economic and environmental issues that affect the resilience of communities in Idaho and the Western United States through the co-production of knowledge based on collaborative interdisciplinary research, and the development and application of social-ecological systems science. This mission is advanced by nurturing, coalescing, and enhancing critical mass in interdisciplinary social-ecological systems science.

The CRC builds on the success of the former Resilience & Adaptive Management Group in Alaska—created and managed by CRC Co-Directors, Andrew Kliskey and Lilian Alessa. The CRC directly supports national research priority areas: alternative futures, environmental intelligence, food-energy-water systems (FEWS), human domain (coupled socio-environmental systems / SES), natural hazards, and resource security.
