Social-ecological system resilience, climate change & adaptive water governance
Alex is part of a SESYNC working group on resilience, climate change and adaptive governance. The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) is dedicated to solving society’s most challenging and complex environmental problems. These problems, rooted in the multifaceted relationship between humans and the ecosystems in which they live, require collaboration among natural, social, and computational scientists, such as ecologists, sociologists, and political scientists.
Our project seeks to explore whether criteria and models can be developed to link ecological resilience and the policies governing the process of water management in complex, multi-jurisdictional water basins, and will contribute to the growing effort to connect concepts from science to policy decisions and to move social-ecological systems toward greater sustainability.
