Sustainable Uplands Managing Uncertainty in Dynamic Socio-Environmental Systems: an application to UK uplands
Time span: 2006-2009
Aim: To help people in uplands better anticipate, monitor and respond to future change
Description: Building on previous research in Botswana, this project developed a methodological framework that was adapted for the DESIRE project. Focussed on land degradation in UK uplands, the aim of the project is to combine knowledge from local stakeholders, policy-makers and social and natural scientists to anticipate, monitor and sustainably manage rural change. It does this through a combination of stakeholder participation and integrated modeling.
Countries: The project is a collaboration between the Universities of Leeds, Durham, Sheffield and Sussex together with the Moors for the Future partnership and Heather Trust. It is funded by the UK Government Research Councils with Defra and SEERAD, and has study sites in the Peak District National Park, Yorkshire Dales and Galloway, Scotland.
