Workshop: Synthesizing Research on Pastoral Governance of Common-Pool Resources

 

"Synthesizing Research on Pastoral Governance of Common-Pool Resources"

Communities of mobile livestock keepers—pastoralists—often have systems for the governance and management of land and resources that do not conform to theoretical models that have been developed based on experience in other kinds of ecosystems.

Graduate Pursuit: The Globalization of Conservation: How Public Perceptions of Biodiversity and International Trade Patterns Shape Mangrove Conservation

 

"The Globalization of Conservation: How Public Perceptions of Biodiversity and International Trade Patterns Shape Mangrove Conservation"

Although conservation is implemented locally, the forces that shape conservation policy and decision-making are increasingly global. Simultaneously promoting human prosperity while protecting biodiversity requires an understanding of how interactions between global and local forces shape conservation management.

Short Course: 2020 Bayesian Modeling for Socio-Environmental Data

 

Short Course: Interactive Web-Based Visualizations and Decision Support Tools in Shiny/R for Quantitative Scientists

Solutions to pressing environmental problems require understanding connections between human and natural systems. Analysis of these systems requires a model that can deal with complexity, is able to exploit data from multiple sources, and is honest about the uncertainty from multiple sources. Synthesis of results from multiple studies is often required.

Graduate Pursuit: An Area of Conflict: The Effects of Agricultural Subsidization on Conservation Goals Worldwide

 

"An Area of Conflict: The Effects of Agricultural Subsidization on Conservation Goals Worldwide"

This project is the result of a partnership between the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) (Germany), the University of Leeds (UoL) (UK), and the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) at the University of Maryland (UMD) (USA); the project brings together highly qualified PhD students interested in an international collaborative synthesis research exp

Pursuit: Socio-Environmental Impacts of Large Hydropower Dams across the Global South

"Socio-Environmental Impacts of Large Hydropower Dams across the Global South"

More than 3,700 dams are planned or under construction across the Global South, with projects in the Mekong and the Amazon the most numerous at present. Hydropower is the leading source of renewable energy across the world, accounting for up to 71% of this supply as of 2016.

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 is 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.
