Carl Folke has developed research on social-ecological systems and resilience thinking. He is Science Director of the Stockholm Resilience Centre and also Director of the Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
Since the mid-1980s he has broken new grounds in understanding the dynamic interplay of humans and nature, of economy and ecology, and developed research on social-ecological systems and resilience thinking from management and stewardship of ecosystem services in the seas and on the land to global sustainability.
