In his paper The Theory of Graceful Extensibility: Basic rules that govern adaptive systems, David Woods borrows the term reciprocity from Elinor Ostrom to describe this property in a system of one agent being willing to lend resources to another as a necessary ingredient for resilience (emphasis mine):

Will the neighboring units adapt in ways that extend the [capacity for maneuver] of the adaptive unit at risk? Or will the neighboring units behave in ways that further constrict the [capacity for maneuver] of the adaptive unit at risk? Ostrom (2003) has shown that reciprocity is an essential property of networks of adaptive units that produce sustained adaptability.
