COVER Gopal Mondal stands on the remnants of land at the edge of Polder 32, an artificial island in Bangladesh. Mondal, a resident of Polder 32's Gunari village, lost his land because of river erosion. As natural and human forces threaten homes and livelihoods, resilience—the ability to adapt to adversity, with whatever approach proves most effective—helps people and communities endure.
