Earth Resilience in the Anthropocene (ERA)Integrating non-linear biophysical and social determinantsof Earth-system stability for global sustainabilitythrough a novel community modelling platform
01/10/2017 - 30/09/2022

In 2015, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement on climate recognised the deteriorating resilience of the Earth system in the Anthropocene. Maintaining Earth in the interglacial state that enabled the world’s societies to evolve over the past 12,00...

Towards middle-range theories of the co-evolutionary dynamics of multi-level social-ecological systems
07/08/2017 - 31/01/2022

Humans have the capacity to change the biosphere from local to global scales while at the same time fundamentally depending on a functioning biosphere for their well-being. Moreover human societies are increasingly affected by global change and adapting to it in multiple ways....

Connected nature: Embedding nature protected areas to support biodiversity and ecosystem services at the landscape scale
01/01/2016 - 30/09/2020

Nature conservation is rooted in a tradition of protecting valuable ecosystems and threatened species, most obviously by the designation of protected areas where human activities are restricted or excluded. However, nature conservation needs to include more than biodiversity p...

Cascading effects of Regime Shifts: Exploring Inconvenient Feedbacks and Domino Effects
01/01/2016 - 31/12/2018

This project will assess the potential interconnections or cascading effects between critical transitions in ecosystems, so called regime shifts. Regime shifts are abrupt, persistent and often hard to reverse changes in a ecosystem´s function and structure. Examples include th...

Advancing Fundamental Knowledge of Natural Capital, Resilience and Biosphere Stewardship

We apply for a research and scientific leadership program in sustainability science, joint between Stanford University and the Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University, in support of leading young scholars operating at the knowledge frontiers on management and governa...

A global analysis of coral reef regimes: patterns, drivers and functional indicators
01/01/2016 - 31/12/2018

We will carry out an ambitious, empirical assessment of global coral reef regimes, relying on an extensive global dataset across gradients of natural and anthropogenic conditions. We will identify the primary human and natural drivers that help to explain these regimes across ...
