This chapter describes the key features of complex adaptive systems (CAS) and presents a framework for analyzing sustainability of coupled human-environment systems (CHES). The framework uses two concepts to characterize and quantify sustainability: well-being and resilience. Well-being describes the state of a CHES at a given point in time, and resilience describes the state change of the system. The framework suggests some quantitative measures for well-being in the context of climate change and variability. It also includes specific analyses that are intended to undertsand the complex processes in a CHES and to provide scientific support for policy to promote sustainable development. The chapter closes with an overview of the study of rural development in the Poyang Lake Region of China.
