Natural Resource Management

Natural Resource Management: Knowledge, Values and Power
Research on this theme aims at identifying pathways to more sustainable natural resource management – and sustainable development at large – by addressing issues of knowledge production and conflicting values in multi-stakeholder settings.
Studies are conducted in South America, the Swiss Alps and Central Asia, and with special emphasis on information technologies in East Africa and Southeast Asia.

Research Themes
1) Values of nature and the role of environmental services
2) Societal learning in multi-stakeholder approaches
3) Information technologies in participatory approaches
