Wherever they live, in rural or urban settings, the dynamics between people and our ecological environment raises concerns – especially in the context of climate change. They need to understand the reciprocity between development and social change on the one hand, and the state of our environmental resources on the other. They need to be able to offer leadership to our organizations and communities to manage resources sustainably and build the resilience of communities. This multidisciplinary course is designed to increase your understanding of the dynamics of socio-ecological systems, and hone your skills related to community-based adaptation and natural resource management, including strategies for the engagement and legal empowerment of communities. The course will also help you develop practical tools and a critical understanding of the principles and methods discussed in the context of different world views, cultures and geographies.
This program is designed for people working in natural resource management, or related fields, who want to enhance their understanding and skills in community-based approaches and models.
