WaterSES

Water scarcity and governance across Social-Ecological Systems (WaterSES).

WaterSES is an endorsed project within the Program on Ecosystem Change and Society (PECS). PECS promotes transdisciplinary, placed-based comparative research to identify appropriate operational scales for SES stewardship and management, and determine when drivers of global change are fast or slow, direct or indirect.

The PECS-WaterSES project compares the social-ecological dynamics causing and caused by water scarcity and governance across international research sites in Spain, China, South Africa and the US (Oklahoma, Texas and Idaho). WaterSES sites have different climates, water needs and socioecological dynamics, but are all experiencing new regional, societal demands for limited water resources. The goal of this working group is to propose sustainable water use and governance solutions.
