SA Research Chair in Social-ecological Systems and Resilience

The Chair, situated in the Centre for Complex Systems in Transition, aims to contribute to addressing theoretical, methodological and empirical gaps in our understanding of social-ecological systems and resilience by employing transdisciplinary methods in ways that integrate approaches from the social and natural sciences, while simultaneously engaging with stakeholders outside academia. It will add to a southern African perspective, and in the process, develop an internationally recognised hub of excellence in this field.
