Understanding the dynamics of coupled human-environmental systems is one of the great challenges of our time.
This cluster brings together members of the School of Geography and the Environment who work on the interactions of human activities with natural systems, from the perspective of pure theoretical and scientific research, to policy, governance and practical applications in resource management, technology, water and food security water, energy, and more.
The following are examples of some of the projects and programmes currently underway within the cluster:
