Working Groups

SESYNC WORKING GROUP ON LAND USE CHANGE AND INFECTIOUS DISEASES

In this venture, a team of natural and social scientists will bring together GIS data on land-use change with data on disease and vector distributions and host abundance in order to develop mathematical and heuristic models. The team’s goal is to understand the impact of land use change on disease ecology to minimize disease risk and maximize direct and indirect economic benefits. The framework developed in this effort will ultimately be adaptable to examine the interactions between land use change and a broad variety of pathogens.

Ecology of Poverty Working Group

This brings together an international group of natural and social scientists to develop new research avenues on coupled bioeconomic and biophysical processes related to poverty, and the effects of potential interventions. This group aims to further define the field, identify key themes and pioneer important research questions to guide a broader community of natural and social scientists, as well as policy-makers.
