Topic Progress:

This week featured two presentations:

1. Rationales for stakeholder involvement in transdisciplinary research – by Anne Juepner, Thomas Falk and Stacey Noel

2. Establishment of global scenarios and identification of their local relevance  - by Bob Costanza and Ida Kubiszewski


1. Rationales for stakeholder involvement in transdisciplinary research In theory and practice different reasons exist to involve stakeholders in research processes. Being clear about objectives of stakeholder participation allows project managers to be more focused in their stakeholder strategy. Participants will learn a systematic approach to become aware of these objectives.

2. Establishment of global scenarios and identification of their local relevance Ecosystem services are a major contributor to sustainable human well-being. Between 1997 and 2011, it has been estimated that the global value of these services has decreased by $20 trillion/yr due to land use change (Costanza et al. 2014). In this study, we evaluate the future value of global ecosystem services under four alternative land use scenarios to the year 2050. The scenarios are a synthesis of prior scenario studies but are based around the four Great Transition Initiative archetypes: (1) Market Forces (MF); (2) Fortress World (FW); (3) Policy Reform (PR); and (4) Great Transition (GT). We also evaluate these scenarios for selected countries and regions, including Kenya, Chile, China, the Greater Mekong Subregion, and the United States. Results show that under the MF and FW scenarios the value of ecosystem services continues to decline, while in the PR scenario the value is maintained or slightly increased and in the GT scenario the value is significantly restored, even exceeding the 1997 value. This result is significantly enhanced if we take into account changes in the per-ha per-year unit values in each scenario due to land degradation or restoration.

Rationales for stakeholder involvement in transdisciplinary research and the presentations of Anne Juepner_and Stacey Noel_Week_3 as well as to the presentation and video of falk wek 3 and the recording of 2. Establishment of global scenarios and identification of their local relevance .

    When I try to open the presentation a disclaimer appears and says that the file is broken.

    Thank you very much for your help.

      Dear Claudia, I wish to comment how I solved these thechnical glitch.

      In order to be able to look at the videos I copied the original URL of the video and played it in a different browser. I Works perfectly.

      Regarding the presentations, the slides of Thomas Falk and Laura Schmidt took some time to download but in the end I could look at the slides.
      The presentation of Juepner and Noel that shows and error message, I scrlled down and saved it in my computer. The first slide is missing but I could easily read the rest.

      Best wishes,
      Martin Felipe
