Welcome to this SIANI, SLU Global and Focali joint event on Multifunctional landscapes for food security, livelihoods and the environment!
Are you a young researcher, PhD student, post-doc or in the beginning of your research carrier? Are you focusing your work on how landscapes are used in an integrated way? Welcome to our young researchers meeting in Gothenburg 7-8 June and discuss with likeminded.
At the meeting there will also be a multidisciplinary group of senior scientists present that have vast experiences on the topic, and that will be able to give feedback to you on manuscripts and/or formulated approaches. We hope to attract researchers from all disciplines. The workshop is organised around three sub – themes:
1. Intensification in multifunctional landscapes – possibilities and contradictions? Anders Malmer, SLU. Keywords: land degradation, climate adaptation, value chains, demand, restoration, agroforestry, water, fertilizers, pesticides.
2. Planning in multifunctional landscapes – factors and actors? Per Knutsson, University of Gothenburg. Keywords: private, common, tenure, governance, subsidies, markets, WTO, infrastructure, monitoring, farmers, extension services
3. Triple win in multifunctional landscapes – climate smart, sustainable and profitable – is it possible? Thilde Bech Bruun, University of Copenhagen. Keywords: climate change, system analysis, green house gas emissions, innovations, carbon stocks, nutrients, agroforestry, climate policy, risks, adaptation, resilience.
The young researchers meeting will be held at “Annedalseminariet”, Seminariegatan 1A at the GU – Campus Linné, not far from tram stop “Linnéplatsen” in Gothenburg. 1A is the big yellow building with a park in the front of the building (see image and map here: http://kartor.eniro.se/m/Paq2w)
