The objective of this report is to describe tools proposed within SURE-Farm’s reports to assess resilience, and to articulate the reasons for using them.
While models are identified as suitable tools for the complexity and multidimensionality of resilience, no single modelling approach or tool is likely to provide enough information to produce an integrated assessment of resilience. Hence, in SURE-Farm, we propose to use a multimethod interdisciplinary toolbox rather than a single one size-fits-all model.
Combining results and insights of all models and tools makes it possible to get an integrated perspective of the different outcomes of the farming system and how changes in the environment might affect them.
