It will do so by bringing together scientists to share their work on the dynamics of interconnected social-ecological systems. Conference attendees will include people from the government, business, NGOs and academic sectors concerned with resource governance, and economic and social development . A key outcome of conference discussions will be the development and refinement of new ideas for meeting the challenge of global change.

Conference themes include: Adaptation, resilience, vulnerability, and coping with change in social-ecological systems; thresholds and regime shifts in social-ecological systems; knowledge, innovation, and social-ecological learning; governance, polycentricity, markets, and multilevel challenges; analyzing and framing resilient development, resilient resources and security; and transformation in social-ecological systems.
