The human imprint on the environment is clearly visible under globalization, whatever is about resources extraction, goods production, or consumption. All these deeply impact on every environmental component, such as forests, agricultural land resources, freshwater, and air quality, because of the need to provide shelter, food, water, or energy to a population of more than seven billion people. How to manage the trade-offs between immediate human needs and to maintain the environment capacity to provide goods and services in the long term seems to be the Earth’s epic “neverending story”. Therefore, the book “Resilient Society” is intended as an attempt to find several answers to the quest of how to become more resilient to environmental, social, or economic pressure. In this context, resilience is understood as the ability to adapt to or tolerate disturbance without collapsing into a qualitatively different state. The volume articulates within a multidisciplinary approach the study of resilience and vulnerability of socio-ecological systems in an effort to disclose the conditions that lead to changes in environmental and resource regimes. This first volume entitled “Resilent Society” of the series “Environment and Human Action” gathers contributions presented at the “International Conference Environmental Legislation, Safety Engineering and Disaster Management” (ELSEDIMA), held on May 26-28, 2016, in Cluj-Napoca (Romania), as well as other papers. This editorial activity aims at contributing to the enlargement of multidisciplinary knowledge and collaborations among researchers working in different fields that can contribute to increasing resilience of socio-ecological systems. The book covers diverse but partially overlapping research areas across natural sciences, social sciences, and engineering, thus capturing insights from economic, law, policy, engineering, agricultural, and life sciences areas. Such knowledge enables to gain a holistic view on the environmental and social challenges that shall constitute a common ground for stakeholders and policy-makers. The editors have confidence that this volume dedicated to resilience will serve as a roadmap for future research and as a catalyst for dialog within scientific community about how to address the environmental interrogations where human actions play a crucial role in shaping the environment.

Agriculture is today at the crossroad. The human population on Earth is growing fastly, especially in developing countries, and will probably reach 9 billion people in 2050. Economic development globally increases people's income. As a consequence, the demand for food is sharply increasing. In addition, the demand for renewable energy, including biofuels, is also going up. At the same time, natural resources are becoming scarce and climatic changes influence more and more the conditions of vegetal and animal production. During the last decades, agricultural production methods have used large quantities of inputs like pesticides and chemical fertilizers. Enough food was produced for the world population, but some environmental problems appeared. In the near future, a new equilibrium will have to be found between agriculture, environment and land management. New concepts are elaborated: “ecologically intensive agriculture”, “organic farming”, “water management”, “agri-environmental measures”, “urban agriculture” etc. This book is a collection of papers dealing with these topics which will define the features of our future.
