© 2018 selection and editorial matter, Kate Schreckenberg, Georgina Mace and Mahesh Poudyal; individual chapters, the contributors. This chapter reviews the conceptual, methodological and empirical applications of resilience and wellbeing concepts in ecosystem services for poverty alleviation research within the ESPA programme, as well as the wider ecosystem services and poverty alleviation scholarship. By utilising and developing these concepts, ESPA scholars offer potential for novel insights into global change processes, global poverty elimination, shifting and uncertain geopolitics, insecurity and increasing inequalities central to the sustainable development agenda. The analysis highlights that politics, power and representation; multiple values attributed to ecosystem services and wellbeing and how they are often shaped by external factors; complex interaction and reciprocity between human and natural systems; and the scale at which these interactions unfold, are critical if we are to find sustainable development solutions that leave no one behind.
