Hazard resource dependency and social resilience

The research in this sub-group addresses the interface between the human use of the landscape and its ecosystems on the one hand, and the ecological and physical processes that operate to sustain that landscape and ecosystem on the other hand. From the conservation of biodiversity at the global scale to the conservation of specific habitats at the local scale, humans are intricately connected with their bio-physical environment, both influencing and being affected by its characteristics and its dynamism. An understanding of this connection is essential in a world in which the geographically uneven human use of natural resources is becoming an increasing challenge.
