Research Program and project

Climate change, territory and diversity should be considered intertwined.

The interdisciplinary research group deals with issues of ecological and cultural diversity (also called bio-cultural diversity) in a comparative and multi-scale. The research focused on three geographical areas in Italy (Veneto, Trentino and Basilicata), and the Amazon region of Ecuador and Peru.

The research approaches integrate GIS Science with qualitative and participatory methodologies, adopting a perspective of non extraction, empowerment and involvement of the actors who contribute to the research. The research supports processes of active citizenship or the construction of public policies (environmental, territorial, cultural) in high conflictive contexts.

Other research focus is the evaluation process including the most well-established procedures of environmental impact assessment, strategic environmental assessment, practices of social impact assessment of the evaluation of landscape and ecosystem services.

Scientific production, apart from some rare cases, is carried out by adopting the perspective of open access and sharing of the total content.
