SPACES – new ESPA funded project


Slide12We are recruiting three Associate Research Fellows (postdocs) and one PhD student to work on our new ESPA funded project Sustainable Poverty Alleviation from Coastal Ecosystem Services (SPACES). The project is a transdisciplinary collaboration between Stockholm Resilience Centre, Exeter University and 30 other international partners. We will be extending our work in Kenya and Mozambique on ecosystem services and human wellbeing. Our new project, starting in September, will enable us to continue successful collaborations from previous ESPA work on the Situational Analysis and P-Mowtick, and work with new partners.

Project information can be found here and here and a project description here.

The posts require a commitment to work across disciplines and to undertake primary fieldwork in Kenya and Mozambique using methodologies such as:

  • coral reef ecological surveys
  • large scale household survey on access to ecosystem services and wellbeing indicators
  • qualitative research on subjective wellbeing
  • analysis of natural resource governance
  • participatory social-ecological modelling
  • participatory scenario development and analysis
