The ARCC Project has a new paper published in the Anthropocene – “an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal answering questions about the nature, scale and extent of interactions between people and Earth processes and systems”. The new paper explores the role of academic scientific research in supporting dialogues on land use and land cover change management decisions and policy formulation. Knowledge, societal rules and values form the context that decisions are made, yet there is still scope for knowledge syntheses and new research to better link with stakeholders for consideration across the region of northern Tanzania and southern Kenya.
