The principal approach of PECS research is comparisons of place-based, long-term social–ecological case studies. Place-based research addresses the particularities of specific landscapes, seascapes or coastal regions and explicitly includes the social–ecological dynamics of the system. PECS welcomes place-based research that occurs at any spatial extent, from global to local.
The success of PECS will depend on the participation of excellent researchers and projects who are motivated to link their research to the PECS network.

WHAT IS PECS
The Program on Ecosystem Change and Society (PECS), is a new initiative jointly sponsored by ICSU and UNESCO. It aims to integrate research on the stewardship of social–ecological system and the relationships among natural capital, human wellbeing, livelihoods, inequality and poverty.
