Social, Cultural and Environmental Connections

Geography is ideally placed, through its broad range of theoretical and methodological tools, to throw light on the complex connections between the human and natural system. 

Thus, we identify, develop and question ways in which societies and cultures value resources across perspectives ranging from rural livelihoods through biodiversity and water resources to recreation. Our research scales from local to global, and from global to local, in locations as diverse as Tanzania, Afghanistan, Russia and Switzerland.
