The Community-Based Rangeland Ecosystem Management (CBREM) project aims to advance understanding of the role of community-based natural resource management institutions in building the resilience of coupled systems to climate change.
Four overarching research questions frame this investigation:
- How resilient or vulnerable are Mongolian pastoral social-ecological systems to climate change?
- Does community-based rangeland ecosystem management (CBREM) increase coupled systems’ resilience to climate change?
- What are the implications of temporal and spatial scales, and differing physical, ecological, and social system boundaries for understanding and managing the resilience of coupled systems?
- Can participatory system modeling and scenario planning improve within-and cross-scale learning, knowledge integration, and adaptation?
