This site presents the activities of 2 major projects:
1) The Adaptation and Resilience to Climate Change (ARCC) project focuses on socio-ecological resilience in the borderlands area of Kenya and Tanzania – and is funded by the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet), Sida and Formas (2016-06355) (2017-2020).
2) REAL is a Marie Curie Actions Innovative Training Network (ITN), funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme (2013-2017).
The aim of REAL is to provide a longer-term historical perspective on human-environment interactions to enable future long-term sustainable use of East Africa’s fragile environment and resources. Together we will focus on the temporal, spatial, and social dynamics of human-landscape interactions in East Africa over the last millennium. By bringing together ecologists, archaeologists, anthropologists, geographers, historians and agronomists, the ITN will provide cross-disciplinary training to a new generation of researchers, enabling them to interpret data relating to past and present socio-cultural and ecological dynamics from across the environmental and social sciences and the humanities.
The REAL project involves seven full participant research centers in Europe and nine international associate partners. REAL is funded by the European Commission through a Marie Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN). Please read our project overview or contact us for more information.
