Dutch nature policy towards 2030-2050 sets the ambition of healthy and robust ecosystems, which are in harmony with social and economic activities. Resilience is mentioned as a criterion for a healthy, robust system. But when is a system resilient, and how do you assess this? How can we operationalise the complexity of resilience in such a way that it can be easily applied by the various stakeholders in policy practice? In this article, we introduce an approach to arrive at an integrated assessment of resilience in a socio-ecological context, as advocated by nature policy. Based on a number of clarifying questions, we propose a step-by-step plan that helps operationalise the concept of resilience in each context for policy in a structured manner.
