Graduate Pursuit: Distilling the Public Discourses and Nexus between Water Quality and Social Inequality

 

"Distilling the Public Discourses and Nexus between Water Quality and Social Inequality"

Access to clean water is a fundamental human right. Though water quality has been examined in environmental justice research, the degradation of domestic water resources has been overlooked, especially in areas with a legacy of extractive industries. Water quality environmental justice research almost exclusively studies after-the-tap water quality, rather than ambient surface water and groundwater.

Foundation: Authors’ Workshop for a Compilation of Classic and Contemporary Writings Tracing the Development of Socio-Environmental Research

 

"Authors’ Workshop for a Compilation of Classic and Contemporary Writings Tracing the Development of Socio-Environmental Research"

Our proposed volume, Foundations of Social-Environmental Research, seeks to address the fragmentation of knowledge production associated with socio-environmental research by providing a single, go-to source of classic readings and contemporary theories that constitute the intellectual lineage and current scope of socio-environmental resear

Pursuit: A Socio-Environmental Synthesis of the Linkages between Water Scarcity Induced Conflict and Land Use/Land Cover Change in Africa to Enhance Multi-Scalar Decision Making

 

"A Socio-Environmental Synthesis of the Linkages between Water Scarcity Induced Conflict and Land Use/Land Cover Change in Africa to Enhance Multi-Scalar Decision Making"

This Pursuit will combine the expertise of social and environmental scientists, NGOs, and government officials to examine where, when, how and why conflicts arise over water.

Pursuit: Synergistic Interactions of Environmental Degradation, Socio-Economic Development and Infectious Disease Dynamics in the Amazon Region

 

"Synergistic Interactions of Environmental Degradation, Socio-Economic Development and Infectious Disease Dynamics in the Amazon Region"

This Pursuit will use data from land-use changes, disease records, and socio-economic surveys to map spatio-temporal patterns of disease transmission onto socio-economic changes underway in the Amazon, and vice-versa. The team will deliver a framework for formulating and parameterizing models of vector-borne diseases in landscapes undergoing rapid transformation.

Pursuit: Social-Ecological Drivers of Change Over Time in Urban Woodlands

 

"Social-Ecological Drivers of Change Over Time in Urban Woodlands"

Remnant and regenerating forest patches are hotspots of biodiversity and ecosystem services in urban regions. Social uses and benefits, abrupt forest edges, introduced and invasive species, and urban climate warming combine to create novel ecological conditions and management challenges in urban woodlands. An array of public, private, and non-profit organizations engage in management and stewardship of these urban woodland patches.
