Resilience assessment has been methodologically addressed, but we still lack specific tools, proved and quantified. In this session we will analyze the theoretical basis and science-policy bridge of resilience assessment. With this purpose we will present methodologies to assess vulnerability and ecosystem services for resilience analysis applied in coastal watersheds, but able to be used at any territorial scale. We will also present and discuss how good watershed management practices for mitigation and adaptation to climate change, as well as for productive purposes, contribute to build socio-ecological reslience of local communities in coastal zones.
