Welcome to
SESYNC
The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) brings together the science of the natural world with the science of human behavior and decision-making to find solutions to complex environmental problems. We convene science teams to work on broad issues of national and international relevance, such as water resources management, land management, agriculture, species protection, among other areas of study. By supporting interdisciplinary science teams and researchers with diverse skills, data, and perspectives, SESYNC seeks to lead in-depth research and scholarship that will inform decisions and accelerate scientific discovery. SESYNC is funded by an award to the University of Maryland from the National Science Foundation. Learn more about SESYNC.

The Story of Urban Water Management Transitions

 

Looking to lessons from the past to inform the future 

Cities face increasing threats to water supplies, but how can they transition towards more sustainable water management? Rapid urbanization, population growth, regulatory frameworks, and multiple competing demands combine to complicate the ability for urban water managers to guarantee future water supplies.

SESYNC Announces 12 Newly Supported Projects


The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) announces that 12 new inter-disciplinary research projects have been supported. The selected projects were submitted through SESYNC’s spring request for proposals (RFP) for collaborative team-based synthesis research pursuits around emerging socio-environmental synthesis topics.

The projects include eight research Pursuits and four Workshops. More information about the awarded projects can be found below.
