Pursuit: Understanding causal pathways and feedbacks within complex water management systems

 

Understanding causal pathways and feedbacks within complex water management systems

Here we propose that a better understanding of causal pathways and feedbacks within water systems—the causality and feedbacks between hydroclimatic conditions, human and ecosystem needs, and reservoir operations—could lead to more sustainable management outcomes when dynamic, competing needs for water exist.

Graduate Pursuit: Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes: Using Marine Protected Areas to Investigate Potential Socio-Ecological Impacts of Climate Change in Marine Spatial Planning

 

Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes: Using Marine Protected Areas to Investigate Potential Socio-Ecological Impacts of Climate Change in Marine Spatial Planning

Marine  protected  areas  (MPAs)  are  an  important  tool  in  the  context  of  marine  spatial planning  where resources  are  managed  according  to  specific  regulations  that  typically  focus  on conservation and sustainable harvesting.

Pursuit: Planning for sustainable water futures in sub-Saharan Africa in the context of the SDGs

 

"Planning for sustainable water futures in sub-Saharan Africa in the context of the SDGs"

The goal of this proposed Pursuit is to aid planning for sustainable water futures in sub-Saharan Africa built around provision of FWES from healthy freshwater ecosystems, in support of achieving the SDGs. The team will synthesize existing knowledge and data across sub-Saharan Africa on FWES and the distribution and role of grey infrastructure.

Pursuit:Can enhancing diversity help scale up agriculture's benefits to people and the environment?

 

"Can enhancing diversity help scale up agriculture's benefits to people and the environment?"

Diversity matters. Diversity in colour, gender, culture, and ideas, are what make our world interesting and beautiful. In recent years diversity in our agricultural systems has been rapidly changing. Two existing SESYNC projects aim to understand the political drivers of this change, and its impacts on human nutrition.

Pursuit: Diverse pathways to nourishment: Understanding how agricultural biodiversity enhances food security and nutrition

 

"Diverse pathways to nourishment: Understanding how agricultural biodiversity enhances food security and nutrition"

There is a growing research consensus that agrobiodiversity can be an important resource for supporting human food security and nutrition (FSN). This Pursuit proposes to move beyond the question of whether a link between agrobiodiversity and FSN exists, and asks how this relationship develops in specific agroecological, sociocultural, and policy contexts.
