IP5 – JACS ACC Urban/Peri-Urban and Highland/Lowland Syndrome Context K.I. 4 - Overview of Master and Bachelor Studies Environmental Risk, Development and Urbanisation
Key Issue Adressed:The interaction between urbanisation and natural resource management. Research examines how actors in rural and urban areas use and/or manage natural resources, and how this results in transformation of space and influences sustainable regional development. Main Research Questions (for Phase I: 2001-2005): What are the social practices that (rural and urban) actors implement with regard to natural resource management? How do these social practices relate to public policies and sustainable regional development initiatives? What are the effects of urban-rural interactions on natural resource management? What is the potential of discussion platforms for reaching consensus among the stakeholders concerning sustainable regional development priorities?

Final comments: • Integrating M.Sc.- and B.Sc.-students has proven to be a useful mechanism both for training and generation of results on the medium term for the project • Counting with local students permits “regional empowerment”/regional capacity building • “Quality” of the work depends of various factors. • Scholarships should be extended to 18 months in case of the B.Sc.-students ¡GRACIAS!
