WHaTeR: Partners

Stockholm Resilience Centre (SRC)

The Stockholm Resilience Centre (SRC) advances trans-disciplinary research for governance of social-ecological systems with a special emphasis on resilience - the ability to deal with change and continue to develop. SRC, funded by Mistra, is a joint initiative of Stockholm University, the Stockholm Environment Institute and the Beijer International Institute of Ecological Economics at The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

SRC administrate the Baltic Nest funded by EU, project KnowSeas (FP7-ENV-2008-1), and the Urban Social-Ecological Atlas, with partner sin South Africa, India, Australia, Turkey, USA, and Finland. SRC researchers took part in the Smallholder Systems Innovations (SSI) project funded by WORTRO/Sida (2004-2008) SRC researchers contributed to the Comprehensive Assessment for Water Management in Agriculture, led by the IWMI. Currently, Barron is coordinating watershed research project on environmental and livelihood aspects in partnership with IWMI, FAO, IFPRI, IDE. The SRC holds a research project on Adapting to changing climate in drylands: the re-greening in Sahel (2010-2012) funded by Sida with Univ. of Abdou Moumouni, Niger, and INERA, Burkina Faso.

Main task in WHaTeR project: SRC will have its main tasks in leading two thematic Work Packages (4 and 8): one investigating the impacts of WHT adoption on catchment hydrology and water-related ecosystems services in selected pilot catchment sites, and another one investigating the drivers of change on a global to regional scale, the outcome of which will serve the development of scenarios to be used in the modelling of impacts of WHT potential spread in different agro-climatic zones.
