SARChI: Interdisciplinary Science in Land and Natural Resource Use for Sustainable Livelihoods

Interdisciplinary Science in Land and Natural Resource Use for Sustainable Livelihoods – Professor Charlie Shackleton
Chair commencement date: 
January 2013
Relevance of research:The focus of the Chair will be interdisciplinary research and human capacity development on the complex social economic and ecological links among land, natural biological resources, and human well-being for sustainable livelihoods and poverty mitigation and alleviation. In essence it will grapple  with questions and mythological approaches around the policy, socio-economic and bio-physical contexts and situations and scales under which natural biological resources or land can contribute to or secure sustainable livelihoods, poverty reduction and greater equity, and to interrogate and expose the means of doing so in an ever-changing socio-economic environment.
