Abstract: Poorly planned development, resource over-exploitation to feed expanding per capita consumption, and climate change interact to diminish native biodiversity, degrade natural resources, and compromise human well-being in urban and urbanizing environments. Because urban dwellers are expected to represent 60 percent of people on Earth by 2030 (UNFP 2007), these impacts are extensive. Innovative approaches to reducing impacts of urban living are being sought across the United States, providing compelling counter-examples of how communities are creatively meeting challenges by enhancing stewardship linkages between people and place. These complex exchanges have important implications for the resilience of coupled natural and human systems, especially regarding response to disturbances and disasters. To date, however, the science available for stewarding coupled urban systems lacks a national framework and coordinated operating environment.
