Profile summary

  • Ecosystem Services
  • Human well-being
  • Social-Ecological Systems
  • Sustainable Development
  • Monitoring and indicators

Odirilwe is interested in understanding how complex systems dynamics can be reflected in the monitoring of progress towards sustainable development. His research focuses on linking these advances in complex systems with monitoring of social-ecological systems.

This builds on some of the work he did during his PhD, were he used complex SES ‘features’ to assess Sustainable Development Goals in terms of their integrated intent against the indicators to be used to monitor them.

He is also interested in exploring the mechanisms by which ecosystem services contribute to human well-being, and focuses particularly on disaggregating ecosystem services benefit use, as well as the indicators used to track these contributions.

Odirilwe recently completed a PhD in Conservation Ecology at Stellenbosch University in South Africa, and holds a Masters degree in Environmental Economics from Wageningen University in the Netherlands. His undergraduate degree was in Agricultural Economics at University of Limpopo, South Africa. During his PhD, he was based at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research – CSIR, in South Africa, where he also worked as a researcher during the last year of his PhD (on leave).

Prior to starting a PhD, he worked as a research coordinator for a not for profit organisation, Living Lands (for which he continues to be a member), which facilitates collaborations towards better land and water stewardship.
