  • Advances transdisciplinary research for governance of social-ecological systems
  • A special emphasis on resilience – the ability to deal with change and continue to develop

Food for a growing world population within the planetary boundaries will require a new ‘planetary food revolution’

why social ecological resilience
Why social-ecological resilience?
  • Human well-being is underpinned by ecosystems
  • Human activities are strong drivers of ecosystem change
  • People can and do act as stewards of their environment

relations between people and nature are complex
Relations between people and nature are complex
  • Cannot manage social and ecological systems in isolation
  • History is important and place matters
  • Ecosystems change and evolve
  • We change, adapt and innovate

how to maintain social ecological resilience
How to maintain social-ecological resilience?
  • Learn to live with change and uncertainty
  • Combine different sources of knowledge
  • Facilitate self-organization
  • Nurture diverse sources for renewal and reorganization

Folke et al. 2003

what is resilience
What is resilience?

‘Resilience is the ability of a community to withstand negative internal and external pressures and threats. Resilience enables adaptation and strength, coherence and intergenerational learning.

Communities can be resilient when they are empowered and clear about their future and can act together to protect their rights’.

African Biodiversity Network

regreening of the sahel

Howdo transformations takeplace?

Regreening of the Sahel

Farmers appear to have actively managed their land in ways that contribute to re-greening, and also enhanced productivity.

The Tigray experience

An approach based on sound ecological principles can enable farmers to overcome environmental constraints such as erosion, poor soil fertility and build household food security on a sustainable basis.

Kenvo and the Kijabe landscape – an ecoagriculture approach

The question that KENVO is grappling with now is how best to measure the landscape in terms of agricultural production and socioeconomic (livelihood) welfare

what needs to be done
What needs to be done
  • Watch out for planetary boundaries
  • Food is creation from cultural and biological diversity – place based, diverse
  • Food security policies for resilient and productive agricultural systems and landscapes must emphasize and build on an increase in agroecologic capacity.
