WEBINAR: Geospatial analysis and collaborative governance

Application of Geospatial Analysis to Investigate Community-Level Water Governance in Kenya

On Monday, the 23th of November 2020, Michael Schoon hosted another webinar on behalf of the PECS Collaborative Working Group. Tom Evans presented his work on application of geospatial analysis to investigate community-level water governance in Kenya:

Tom Evans is a is a professor in the School of Geography, Development and Environment at the University of Arizona (USA). He investigates climate impacts and adaptation processes in smallholder agroecosystems as related to food and water security. Recent projects have investigated the spatial and temporal characteristics of drought events in Zambia and Kenya and the mechanisms utilized by farmers in rainfed and irrigated systems to mitigate those impacts. This work involves investigation of household level decision-making dynamics, institutional analysis/environmental governance, and integration of social-environmental data. Newer work is investigating the teleconnections between rural food production and urban food security through analysis of urban food systems.
