Bringing together colleagues from both academia and the world of practice, participants in this synthesis project will develop a more acute and systematic understanding of the promise and limits of environmental governance in relation to the long term sustainability of social-ecological/human-environmental systems. Their primary focus will be on how disciplinary and interdisciplinary knowledge (from the social as well as ecological sciences, in addition to the fields of political ecology, common property, and feminist environmentalism) can inform those interested in averting local and non-local social-ecological collapse.
