The PECS session


Early career researchers from the PECS network will present and discuss in an engaging session August 16th at 1pm (GMT+1).


The work presented takes a comparative, place-based approach to understanding social–ecological systems, the services they generate, and the relationships among natural capital, human wellbeing, livelihoods, inequality and poverty. This session aims to highlight the work of early career researches from across the PECS network and spark a discussion around challenges of case comparisons, interactions across scales, fast and slow drivers of social and ecological change, thresholds, traps and time lags, and identifying appropriate operational scales.
