Frameworks that link ecosystems services (ES) and human resilience are still nascent. The links between ES and human wellbeing are still not well understood, and links to resilience even less so. The debate around human resilience in itself is still ongoing in the literature. However, there has been a growth in interdisciplinary science around ES and there is growing evidence that ES support human resilience.
