Our mission at CIRES is to advance research on the resilience of socio-ecological systems in face of global change, facilitating better governance outcomes that take into account environmental, social and economic concerns. To achieve this we have organized a multi-disciplinary group with the following aims:
1. To develop a regional hub for scientific exchange and collaborative research in conservation ecology and sustainability.
2. To cultivate an interdisciplinary approach for solving complex socio-ecological problems.
3. To encourage graduate education and promote public interest in our work.
