Over the past fifty years, human activities have changed ecosystems around the world faster and more extensively than before. These changes indicate the need for a better understanding of how to manage and adapt to changes. Many of the challenges of managing the social-environmental ecosystems we face today are related to dynamic processes. Villages are a noticeable example of these ecosystems that are constantly changing. These conditions raise the need to reconsider human-environment interactions on a large scale and the need for how to intervene and how to manage ecosystems that depend on human well-being. Mazar village is a renowned active ecosystem today; since the signs of rural community connection with the natural environment can be traced, and more or fewer ecosystem services depend on this cycle. This research aims to identify the changes and guide the desired transformation of the Mazar village system, without compromising the integrity of the system, with a resilience approach. In fact, how to achieve the intervention and management of Mazar village as a dynamic ecosystem is considered in this study. Using a qualitative method, the concepts and components of village resilience have been evaluated and analyzed to provide an alternative for thinking and managing it. In this study, statistical data from relevant organizations have been reviewed and analyzed to identify the current situation of the village and in-depth interviews with local people have been conducted to evaluate the components of resilience. The research tools included available statistical data and interviews based on the components of resilience, which determine the rate of change and how the system transits according to the importance of components such as diversity, modularity, reserves, feedbacks, complexity, monitoring, trust, and leadership. In the studies conducted using the existing structure and human capital in the village, it is possible to strengthen some of the components of resilience that have been neglected to achieve resilience communities in Mazar village.
