Bachelor of Science in Wildlife Management and Conservation

Background Humans share the planet with as many as 8.7 million different forms of life and out of these; about 1.2 million have been documented. However, even after centuries of effort, some 86 per cent of these life forms have yet to be fully described. A huge percentage of the planet's original life forms are extinct. The planet's life forms exist in a delicate balance, owing to the ever-changing climate and other natural forces and phenomena - with consequent challenges to this balance.

Operationalizing food system resilience: an indicator-based assessment in agroindustrial, smallholder farming, and agroecological contexts in Bolivia and Kenya

Resilience is often considered a precondition for sustainable social-ecological systems. But how can this understanding of resilience be applied to food systems? We operationalized the concept by subdividing it into different resilience dimensions, namely: buffer capacity, self-organization, and capacity for learning and adaptation.
