Resilience 2:1: Research Proposal
Cheryl Bradbee, BPhil, MCS, MDiv, MLA, PhD

The Resilience 2:1 model is based on the current ratio of biocapacity to carbon footprint enjoyed by Canada. Canada enjoys this ratio primarily by accident, as a geographically large nation with a relatively small population.
