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.

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.

Workshop: Graduate Leaders in Socio-Environmental Synthesis

 

"Graduate Leaders in Socio-Environmental Synthesis Workshop"

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.
