Abstract for:Looking for a Generic Model Structure for Resilience Assessment: A Case Study of Water Resilience in the Lisbon Region
System Dynamics has a demonstrated potential as a model-based method for resilience assessment. In SD applications to societal resilience assessment, there is a need to start the modelling from somewhere, and generic structures might be of help. In this paper, we discuss the use of a small model that reproduces the emblematic system behaviors portrayed by the resilience literature as a starting point to conceptualize social ecological systems in resilience assessment projects. We illustrate it with a case study of a water resilience assessment project alongside a Lisbon civil society organization.
