'Vulnerability’ and ‘resilience’ in the renewed approaches to development and the environment


The "Centre for Study of Globalisation, Conflicts, Territories and Vulnerabilities" (CEMOTEV), organized with its partner UMI Résiliences (IRD), the international conference : 'Vulnerability' and 'resilience' in the renewed approaches to development and the environment ", on November 13, 14 and 15, 2019, at the 'University of Versailles Saint-Quentin en Yvelines.

The aim of this conference is to conduct a future-oriented assessment of the contributions and limitations of the concepts of vulnerability and resilience almost 20 years after they began to become more widespread in academic research as well as in development and environmental policies. These policies have been in a state of constant evolution since the beginning of the 1990s. In a context of global change, the growing importance of the theme of poverty reduction (MDGs, 2000-2015) and the increased attention paid to environmental concerns (Rio, 1992) by national and international authorities have gradually led to the convergence of development and environmental analyses (SDGs, 2015-2030), in particular through the notion of sustainable development. A focus on the long term, on complex dynamics, contexts and the role of institutions as well as a partial questioning of the “traditional” indicators based on GDP are at the very heart of this convergence.
