ArcAlpNET – Program on Ecosystem Change and Society (PECS),

About PECS

 

The Program on Ecosystem Change and Society (PECS), is a new 10-year initiative jointly sponsored by ICSU and UNESCO. PECS aims to integrate research on the stewardship of social–ecological systems, the services they generate, and the relationships among natural capital, human wellbeing, livelihoods, inequality and poverty.

PECS research will be explicitly transdisciplinary and intersectoral, and will thereby break down barriers that have impeded understanding of social-ecological transformations. PECS aims to understand interactions across scales, such as fast and slow drivers of social and ecological change, thresholds, traps and time lags, in order to identify appropriate operational scales. A comparative, place-based approach, international in scope, is at the core of PECS research.
