The Australian Resilience Centre undertakes research on resilience, adaptation and transformation.  We collaborate widely on research design and support researchers to develop and implement communication and engagement strategies.  

We currently work with CSIRO, Universities, Research & Development Corporations and government agencies.  Our research interests include the development and application of resilience theory and the development of adaptive governance and management, particularly in relation to climate adaptation. 

“Paul Ryan is an engaging communicator, with an impressive ability to convey challenging ideas about systemic change to any audience. Such skills are of immense value as we researchers seek to translate conceptual notions about how to build capacity for useful change into real and positive change on the ground. It is always a delight to observe those ‘light bulb’ moments among the many types of natural resource managers that Paul has worked with. I have seen many such a moment over the years I have worked with Paul, including in myself, and in Paul, who always shows a keen willingness to learn. ”
