"Evaluating relationships among human health & welfare, ecological condition & natural resource governance" Pursuit meeting
This is a closed meeting for a funded synthesis group of visiting scholars.
This project uses geo-referenced household, health, and agricultural surveys in combination with biophysical and governance data in order to better understand the relationship among human health and welfare, ecological condition, and natural resource governance. We leverage expertise in human health, development, conservation and social sciences in order to perform impact evaluations, explore characteristics of interventions that work, and forecast potential future outcomes under changing socio‐economic conditions. The results of the group's work will yield implications for planning the governance of natural resources; preparing for potential areas of conflict between biodiversity, livelihoods, and health; and scoping adaptation projects based on an understanding of how changing populations will affect and be affected by changes in ecological conditions.
