Responding to disastrous wildfires traversing geographical scales requires multi-actor collaboration to address a series of interdependent operational tasks. While this type of distributed collective action problem is salient across governance contexts, less is known about if and how collaboration helps individual actors effectively address their tasks. Applying a novel network-centric method to wildfire responder networks in...

Castro, A. 2022. Vernacular sustainabilities—multispecies stories and life-death entanglements of the sertão nordestino in contemporary Brazilian futurisms (the film Bacurau and the sertãopunk comic Cangaço Overdrive). Humanities. https://doi.org/10.3390/h11020050
In northeastern Brazil, a region with extreme droughts and the smallest rainfall index in the whole country, water sources are crucial to ensure the survival of humans and nonhumans in this semi-arid region, known as sertão nordestino. Since the mid-twentieth century, classical cultural expressions focusing on this area have emphasized poverty in a desert of dry vegetation. Unlike romanticized portrayals of the backland in the...
Ochoa, R., Avila-Ortega, D., Cravioto, J. 2022. Energy services' access deprivation in Mexico: A geographic, climatic and social perspective. Energy Policy. http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.enpol.2022.112822
Energy services (ES) are essential domains to understand energy deprivation in households. However, the literature exploring ES measures that focuses on access vulnerability is small, particularly in connection with socio-economic and geographical conditions. This fact has a profound effect on national and local energy policy and multilateral frameworks, such as the UN SDGs, which traditionally favour electrification as a meas...
Peralta, H., Avila-Ortega, D., García-Flores, J. 2022. Jatropha Farm: a circular economy proposal for the non-toxic physic nut crop in Mexico. Proceedings of the 9th International Conference on Sustainable Development. http://dx.doi.org/10.3390/environsciproc2022015010
Jatropha curcas (physic nut) is a promising crop in tropical countries because its seeds have a high oil content that can be easily transformed into biodiesel. The oil can also serve to obtain other bioproducts. However, several obstacles hinder the extensive application of the crop, for example, the relative low prices of petroleum and oil, the toxicity of the seeds, low crop yields and rusticity of the plant. We propose a mo...

A planetary boundary for green water. Nature Reviews Earth and Environment. http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/s43017-022-00287-8
Green water — terrestrial precipitation, evaporation and soil moisture — is fundamental to Earth system dynamics and is now extensively perturbed by human pressures at continental to planetary scales. However, green water lacks explicit consideration in the existing planetary boundaries framework that demarcates a global safe operating space for humanity. In this Perspective, we propose a green water planetary boundary and es...

Chapter 5: The role of diverse values of nature in visioning and transforming towards just and sustainable futures. In: Methodological Assessment Report on the Diverse Values and Valuation of Nature of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services. Christie, M., Balvanera, P., Pascual, U., Baptiste, B., and González-Jiménez, D. (eds). IPBES secretariat, Bonn, Germany. https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.6522326
The chapter assesses the role of nature's diverse values in supporting social-ecological transformations towards more just and sustainable futures. This is approached as a two-fold and mutually complementing task: a) assessing the diverse values that have been considered in developing and creating visions for, and scenarios of the future, particularly those relating to more just and sustainable futures; and b) assessing how i...

Expert perspectives on global biodiversity loss and its drivers and impacts on people. Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment. http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/fee.2536
Despite substantial progress in understanding global biodiversity loss, major taxonomic and geographic knowledge gaps remain. Decision makers often rely on expert judgement to fill knowledge gaps, but are rarely able to engage with sufficiently large and diverse groups of specialists. To improve understanding of the perspectives of thousands of biodiversity experts worldwide, we conducted a survey and asked experts to focus on...
Harmáčková, Z. V., Pedde, S., Bullock, J. M., Dellaccio, O., Dicks, J., Linney, G., Merkle, M., Rounsevell, M. D. A., Stenning, J., Harrison, P. A. 2022. Improving regional applicability of the UK shared socioeconomic pathways through iterative participatory co-design. Climate Risk Management. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.crm.2022.100452
Regional analyses of risks from climate change require reproducible, consistent and robust approaches to downscaling global socioeconomic scenarios, with coherent processes that work across multiple projects and communities. We address this need by developing an iterative approach to stakeholder-based Shared Socioeconomic Pathway (SSP) downscaling and co-design, enabling us to extend SSPs while maintaining their consistency fr...
