Agnes Pranindita studies ways in which moisture recycling connects distant regions and intertwines aspects of human livelihood
Pranindita’s research looks at ways to integrate the concept of moisture recycling into land use governance. Moisture recycling processes embedded in a social-ecological system suggests that the impact of land use and land cover transition is not solely limited to changes in moisture availability and transport. The social and economic implications of the changes in moisture balance may reveal that sources and sinks of moisture are all the more entangled.
Pranindita’s research aims to advance the understanding of moisture recycling’s role in connecting aspects of human livelihood at different scales as well as in different sectors, and how this role may influence future land use governance.
Pranindita holds an MSc degree in Earth and Environment, specializing in Hydrology and Water Resources from Wageningen University and Research, the Netherlands, and a BASc in Process Engineering and Food Technology from De Haagse Hogeschool, the Netherlands.
Prior to her PhD, she was a research assistant at the Stockholm Resilience Centre for the Ripples of Resilience project. The objective of the project was to explore the refinement of the water planetary boundary and the pathways to navigate the achievement of SDG’s within the proposed boundary.

Shifts in regional water availability due to global tree restoration
Journal / article | 2022
Tree restoration is an effective way to store atmospheric carbon and mitigate climate change. However, large-scale tree-cover expansion has long been known to increase evaporation, leading to reduced local water availability and streamflow. More recent studies suggest that increased precipitation, through enhanced atmospheric moisture recycling, can offset this effect. Here we calculate how 900 million hectares of global tree ...
An Earth system law perspective on governing social-hydrological systems in the Anthropocene
Journal / article | 2021
The global hydrological cycle is characterized by complex interdependencies and self-regulating feedbacks that keep water in an ever-evolving state of flux at local, regional, and global levels. Increasingly, the scale of human impacts in the Anthropocene is altering the dynamics of this cycle, which presents additional challenges for water governance. “Earth system law” provides an important approach for addressing gaps in go...
