NCCR North-South - Research Partnerships for Sustainable Development


Thank you for visiting the website of the Swiss National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) North-South. The NCCR North-South programme formally ended in June 2014.

The Development - Environment Nexus

The Development-Environment Nexus: Policymaking in Context
This theme combines the perspectives of themes "Environmental dynamics, natural resources and livelihoods" and "Knowledge, values and power in natural resource management" and focuses on the meso-level or regional scale because it is here where process, potentials and conflicts of overlapping ecological spaces and socio-economic and political spheres are manifested and articulated.

Research is mainly conducted in Southeast Asia at a conceptual and methodological level, and in Central Asia, East Africa and the Swiss Alps in a more applied perspective.

Research Themes
1) Space, spheres and levels in the development-environment nexus
2) Resources and livelihoods in center-periphery perspective
3) Linking regional development and sustainable resource management
