New Webinar on Geospatial Analysis and Environmental Governance

Hi All!

I wanted to share this recording of a webinar by Tom Evans on geospatial analysis and environmental social science.  A link to the recording is available here.

Title: Application of Geospatial Analysis to Investigate Community-Level Water Governance in Kenya

Bio: Tom Evans is a professor in the School of Geography, Development and Environment at the University of Arizona (USA). He investigates climate impacts and adaptation processes in smallholder agroecosystems as related to food and water security. Recent projects have investigated the spatial and temporal characteristics of drought events in Zambia and Kenya and the mechanisms utilized by farmers in rainfed and irrigated systems to mitigate those impacts. This work involves investigation of household level decision-making dynamics, institutional analysis/environmental governance, and integration of social-environmental data. Newer work is investigating the teleconnections between rural food production and urban food security through analysis of urban food systems. 

This is the latest webinar on methodological approaches to studying collaborative governance and management of social-ecological systems as part of the Programme on Ecosystem Change and Society (PECS) working group on collaborative governance.
