Stockholm Resilience Centre workshop: Representatives for the new international collaboration on improving MAB governance.

International collaboration to improve MAB governance

Researchers at Stockholm Resilience Centre join forces with French and Swedish expertise on Man and Biosphere regions to enhance communication as means to improve governance.

The new collaboration is the result of a workshop held by Dr. Michel Etienne from the Agri-Food Research and Development Initiative in Avignon.

The workshop was held at Stockholm Resilience Centre 20-22 August and was organised by members of the Knowledge management, learning and social networks in social-ecological systems research theme.

Dr Michel Etienne has developed a model called Commod that makes stakehlders aware of their use of resources in Man and Biosphere (MAB) regions. The model can provide grounds for better understanding and agreement on future management.

The workshop resulted in a new collaboration between researchers at the Resilience Centre and researchers and MAB-coordinators in France and Sweden. The aim is to use communication and the visualising of knowledge in future MAB areas and through research develop an understanding of these tools and processes.

Stockholm Resilience Centre is a collaboration between Stockholm University and the Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences
