GL-CRSP Focus Themes a vertical world?

  • Environment

  • Human Nutrition

  • Economic Growth

  • Policy


Why environment

WHY ENVIRONMENT? a vertical world?

Extensive interaction with landscapes

Major human use of the land

Global implications

Interaction with other major revenue sources


Grazed Lands of the World a vertical world?


Variability risk

Co 2 flux sites

Precipitation a vertical world?

324 mm yr-1

Typical steppe, Kazakhstan

Sagebrush-ephemeroid semidesert, Uzbekistan

Shrub sandy desert, Turkmenistan

CO2 Flux Sites

237 mm yr-1

148 mm yr-1


Integration of co 2 flux data usda ars central asia
Integration of CO a vertical world?2 Flux Data:USDA-ARS & Central Asia

  • Importance to US

    • Functional similarities between US and Central Asian rangelands allows robust modeling for spatial extrapolation of CO2 flux in the Northern Hemisphere.

    • Unified modeling approach across continents

Participating institutions:

UC-Davis GL/CRSP EROS Data Center Utah State Univ.

USDA-ARS South Dakota State Univ.

Yellowstone serengeti mara yesema
Yellowstone/Serengeti/Mara (YESEMA) Project

  • Management challenges of conserved areas surrounded by people dependent on livestock and managed by an array of government agencies in an environment of strong public input and attention.

World is filling up
WORLD IS FILLING UP FOOD SECURITY, CONSERVATION AND ECOSYSTEM INTEGRITY IN EAST AFRICA

  • DEMANDS ON RESOURCES INCREASE

  • SOCIETAL SECTORS INTERACT MORE INTENSELY

  • PROBLEMS BECOME MORE COMPLEX

  • PROBLEMS CUT ACROSS DISCIPLINES


Observations
OBSERVATIONS FOOD SECURITY, CONSERVATION AND ECOSYSTEM INTEGRITY IN EAST AFRICA

  • RESOURCES FLOW DOWN VERTICAL CHANNELS IN OUR INSTITUTIONS

  • LACK OF KNOWLEDGE OF COMPLEX SYSTEMS IS APPARENT

  • INCREASED KNOWLEDGE OF HOW TO DESIGN AND MANAGE SUCH PROJECT WOULD BE USEFUL

  • RESOURCES TO EVALUATE AND LEARN FROM EXPERIENCE IS NOT A FOCUS OF DEVELOPMENT PROCESS


Points to consider
POINTS TO CONSIDER FOOD SECURITY, CONSERVATION AND ECOSYSTEM INTEGRITY IN EAST AFRICA

HOW TO SUPPORT HORIZONTAL PROGRAMS IN A VERTICAL WORLD?

DEVELOP MECHANISMS TO CUT ACROSS INSTITUTIONAL BARRIERS (FOR EXAMPLE: TEAMS?)

INTEGRATE NOT ISOLATE!


Points to consider1
POINTS TO CONSIDER FOOD SECURITY, CONSERVATION AND ECOSYSTEM INTEGRITY IN EAST AFRICA

HOW TO LEARN FROM EXPERIENCE AND SHARE THE KNOWLEDGE OF DESIGNING AND MANAGING THESE TYPES OF PROJECTS?

MORE SCIENCE IN DEVELOPMENT PERHAPS:

DEVELOPMENT SCIENCE

(EVALUATION ALONG WITH ASSESSMENT)


Points to consider2
POINTS TO CONSIDER FOOD SECURITY, CONSERVATION AND ECOSYSTEM INTEGRITY IN EAST AFRICA

HOW TO ENSURE THAT KNOWLEDGE GENERATION IS VIEWED AS A COMPONENT OF THE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS?

GET INVOLVED!!!!

EDUCATE AND ADVOCATE
