Abstract
Phase I focuses on an extensive review of the literature in community adaptive capacity, socio-technical systems and social trust and social networks. The review explores the role of networked sociotechnical systems as they contribute to adaptive capacity, a concept rooted in social-ecological resilience theory, at the community level. Relevant applications of social network analytical methods are explored as a means of guiding methodological development for the next project phase.
