A central theme of this book is the definition of potential failure pathways that can lead to socio-ecological system collapse and then the derivation of sustainability strategies to address these potential failure pathways so that a socio-ecological system has the capacity to manage system-threatening disturbances and maintain its structure and function, i.e. that the socio-ecological system is sustainable. The collapse of the Maya is of value to this theme because of the variety of theories that scholars have put forward for the reasons for the collapse based on the interaction between socio-economic and biophysical systems at several spatial scales as well as the significance of water management in the collapse.
Categories of failure pathways are distilled from these theories of collapse and then placed in the framework of nested adaptive systems . A framework for analysing the resilience of societal systems to major disturbances is then developed. Approaches to the development of sustainability strategies are described within the same framework based on the principles of ecosystem stewardship.
