The Institute will develop a transdisciplinary approach to conduct research on social ecological systems through engaging government institutions academia, civil society and community organizations. Our team will study the interactions and dialectic relationships between the environment and humans in order to develop an alternate ways of managing human and natural systems. Through our collaborative actions we will build consensus that will allow us to create well-informed stewardship plans, local outreach activities and educational program.
