The People in Nature knowledge (PiN) basket is focused on the potential of nature to contribute to solutions to the multifaceted challenges experienced by rural and remote communities from environmental change and globalisation. This builds upon a long-standing interest of IUCN in bringing people into conservation practice, linking conservation and development discourses and the programme area of nature-based solutions.This chapter provides an overview of resilience thinking empahsising the concenpts and lessons relevant to PiN and a description of a preliminary framework for analysing and understanding the potential of nature to contribute to the development of rural and remote communities during times of globalised change.
