Centre partner in Earth System Governance project

Launched during Amsterdam Conference on the Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change.

With the the theme on adaptive governance as a backdrop, centre researchers are collaborating closely on the recently launched Earth System Governance Project, a core project of the International Human Dimensions Programme on Global Environmental Change (IHDP).

Focus on impact of rules and actor-networks
The project builds on the results of the former IHDP project on the Institutional Dimensions of Global Environmental Change (IDGEC).

The conceptual framework for the Earth System Governance Project is based on how formal and informal rules, rule-making systems, and actor-networks are set up to steer societies towards preventing, mitigating, and adapting to environmental change.

The notion of governance refers here to more forms of steering that are more de-centralized, open to self-organization, and inclusive of non-state.

Conference on human dimensions of environmental change
As part of the collaboration, Centre researchers Victor Galaz, Per Olsson, Beatrice Crona, Carl Folke along with PhD students from the centre´s new Resilience Research School contributed to the recent Amsterdam Conference on the Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change.

A key centre input were presentations on adaptive governance and innovation.
