Description

This series of sessions aims to bring together researchers and practitioners focused on coupled human-environment interactions in socio-ecological systems (SESs). The complexity and interconnectedness of the biophysical and socio-economic dimensions of SES necessitates continual adaptive approaches by stakeholders, communities and local households in order to reduce their level of vulnerability to climatic and environmental changes. The nature and degree of vulnerability depends on resource and land use, as mediated by social, political, economic and institutional structures which include evolving development and policy initiatives. We invite studies that contribute to understanding the feedbacks of human-environment interactions and household and community-level vulnerability and adaptive approaches in areas experiencing increasing environmental uncertainty.

The linked sessions aim to offer an opportunity for convergence of SES specific knowledge in the context of adaptation and vulnerability research areas with presentations of recent research, and identification of future directions. The presentations in these (2-3) linked sessions will enable both senior and junior researchers examining change and adaptation in SES across multiple geographic scales of analysis. Presentations in these sessions may focus on any type of SES, regardless of geographic location, and on any topic relevant to the furthering of our understanding of the socio-ecological systems from both a social and biophysical or interlinked perspective.

Sessions are organized by Andrea Gaughan, University of Louisville, Narcisa Pricope, University of North Carolina-Wilmington, Jon Salerno, Colorado State University, and Joel Hartter, University of Colorado, Boulder.
